Silence-Lotto's Greg Van Avermaet will likely miss the opening weekend of the Belgian season due to an inner-ear infection, the Belgian ProTour team announced Monday evening. The Belgian rider knew that he would be unlikely to ride in Omloop Het Volk and Kuurne-Brussel-Kurrne this coming weekend, with the team confirming the situation in an official announcement on Monday.

After a few more days of rest it is hoped that the 22 year-old will be able to start training on the roller the end of this week. "If all goes well, he will soon be able to train on the road and will be fit to start at Paris-Nice [on March 9]," the team said optimistically.
