Robbie McEwen will ride the E3-Prijs Saturday despite the back problems that forced him to drop out of Dwars door Vlaanderen Wednesday. "I went to the chiropractor Thursday afternoon and everything is in order again," he told Sporza.be.
"Now he is 100 percent," said Predictor-Lotto spokesman Fillip Demyttenaere. "On Thursday the doctor put everything right. Robbie told me that he feels great again."
Demyttenaere added that, "We want to play a role in all the spring races, not just in the Ronde van Vlaanderen and Paris-Roubaix. In the E3 Prijs we have two leaders: McEwen and Leif Hoste. The latter is also 100 percent fit."
