Hincapie escapes surgeon's knife, out only 1 week

VeloNews.com | Wednesday's EuroFile: Hincapie won't need surgery; Raisin said to be improving; Rebellin hopeful despite rib injury

George Hincapie will not need surgery, as originally reported, to repair damage in his shoulder from his crash late in Sunday's Paris-Roubaix.

Doctors diagnosed Hincapie's injury as a third-degree shoulder separation. He can return to the bike in “about a week,” and expects to line up next at the Dauphiné Libéré in June.
