De Waele has sore knees

Landbouwkrediet-Colnago rider Bert de Waele is suffering from sore knees. Team doctor Michael Dick has ordered De Waele to rest for two days and then to follow an individual training program. He will remain at the team's training camp in Italy, and if things don't improve before Monday, a deeper examination will be performed. De Waele will not be starting in the GP Ouverture or Etoile des Bessèges races, and will be replaced by James Vanlandschoot.
