Olympic time-trial champion Fabian Cancellara says a broken collarbone won't affect his preparations for the London Games.
He crashed during the Tour of Flanders on Sunday and underwent surgery for four fractures of his right collarbone. The Swiss rider expects to resume training next week and skip the remaining one-day spring classics.
Cancellara says in a statement that ''because I had planned a break after the classics anyway, my build-up towards London will not change.'' He expects to return at the Tour of Bavaria on May 23-27.
Cancellara won the silver medal in the 2008 Beijing Olympics road race. He is scheduled to compete in that event in London on July 28. The time trial is Aug. 1.
