Greg van Avermaet (CnG) that they will not be leaving Flanders (WorldTour) Wednesday in Roeselare. The Olympic hero prefers to rest before the Flanders (WorldTour) Tour which takes place on Sunday.
"The E3 GP Harelbeke and Ghent-Wevelgem spend lots of energy for their athletes. That's why we decided that Greg wouldn't start from Flanders"explains Fabio Baldato, director of gymnastics shape of ACW."They have more time to relax and revitalize. Greg Van Avermaet's lack of opportunity allows cyclists to take their chances. Gijs Van Hoecke, Nathan Van Hooydonck and Michael Schär have an excellent knowledge of Flemish classical music. And Pawel Bernas, Kamil Gradek, Jonas Koch and Szymon Sajnok have done a good job in the last few weeks. I hope these seven runners will race".
