Andy Schleck pulls out of Road World Champs

Luxembourg’s Andy Schleck, who finished second on the Tour de France, will not take part in the UCI road world championships in Melbourne next month.

Schleck, born June 10, 1985, is preparing for the Tour of Spain which kicks off in Seville on Saturday and runs through until September 19, and also hopes to race the Tour of Lombardy in Italy on October 16.

But the Luxembourg cycling federation announced on Tuesday that Schleck would not be representing the country at the championships.
