Discovery Channel classics specialist Max Van Heeswijk plans to return to racing for next week's semi-Classic Ghent-Wevelgem (April 6). Van Heeswijk started last week's Dwars door Vlaanderen, but failed to finish, complaining of a throat and jaw inflammation.

"Dwars door Vlaanderen went against him, so we are letting him rest," Discovery Channel directeur sportif Dirk Demol told ANP/Belga. "If he's back to normal for Ghent Wevelgem, then he will be at the start."
