Johan Museeuw will have to wait a few months for his next day in court. He, Mario De Clercq, Jo Planckaert and Chris Peers were scheduled to start their trial in Kortrijk, Belgium, this coming Monday, April 2. but the trail has now been delayed until June 19.

In a case dating back to 2003, the cyclists were charged with possessing EPO and Aranesp. Former World Champion Museeuw is accused of possessing drugs acquired through a veterinarian. Although he never failed a doping test, he was banned by the Belgian Federation for two years for his alleged offence, and has recently admitted to doping.
