Edvald Boasson Hagen will sit out the Omloop Het Nieuwsblad this weekend due to illness.
"I'm glad I got the cold now," he said, according to nieuwsblad.be. "It would have been worse if it had come later in connection with Paris-Roubaix."
In 2011, he finished 41st in the Belgian classic, but in 2010, he was sixth.
