The crowds in Koksijde will not spot the rainbow coloured jersey from Erwin Vervecken (Fidea). The Fidea-team website reported that the world champion is ill fevered and called off his participation in Saturday's race. The 34 year-old Belgian is known as one of the best runners of the field and would've started as a favorite on the sandy subsoil near Koksijde.

It's still unsure whether the number two in the UCI-ranking will participate on Sunday in the fourth event of the Superprestige in Gieten. Meanwhile, it is expected that Jan Soetens (Jartazi - Promo Fashion) will take over the spot from Vervecken in the Belgian selection for Koksijde.
