Paris-Roubaix will be live on on Sunday.

Team Sky’s Edvald Boasson Hagen has withdrawn from this Sunday’s edition of Paris-Roubaix with an Achilles injury, his team confirmed on Wednesday.

The 22-year-old will take time out to be treated in a bid to recover and win a place in the nine-man team for July’s Tour de France.

Boasson Hagen will be replaced in Team Sky’s line-up by New Zealand’s Greg Henderson and will next race at the Tour de Picardie from May 14-16.
