Despite finishing the second stage of the Four Days of Dunkirk, Frank Vandenbroucke (MrBookmaker.com) will not take part in the third stage. Team manager Hilaire Van der Schueren told VRT "It was planned that Frank would give up after two days. We stuck to that. Frank didn't ride badly today, but crashed and then had two punctures. But he made progress, and that offers us more prospects again."
Vandenbroucke said that he was "not dissatisfied with these two days. We'll see how it goes, but I have hope."
