Rowing New Zealand's reassuring fans Mahe Drysdale's shoulder injury will have a minimal effect on his Olympic campaign.
Drysdale's suffered a biking accident at a roundabout in Germany and is unlikely to compete in the World Cup regatta in Munich this weekend.
The regatta is the last major international meet before the Games.
Chief executive Simon Peterson says it's not serious.
"It's four days out of the boat, maximum of a week recovery at this stage and that's what we know so in terms of a setback for the the Olympics, I think it's manageable and Mahe's a very senior and experienced athlete and we know he'll work through it."
He says Drysdale looks set to forgo racing.
"This is the last chance to get some international racing under the belt but there's still 42 days to go until London rowing Olympic programme starts so there's plenty of time to get over this hurdle."
Peterson says early indications are the injury isn't serious and Drysdale's expected back in the boat within a week.
Drysdale's key rival Czech Ondrej Synek is also missing the regatta.
