Johan Museeuw, Mario De Clercq, Jo Planckaert and Chris Peers will have to be in court in Kortrijk, Belgium, on Monday, April 2, for a doping-related trial. They had requested that the charges be dismissed, but that appeal was overruled in January.

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.
