Belgian national coach Carlo Bomans finally got some good news. Both Stijn Devolder and Björn Leukemans will be able to start in the road race on Sunday. Leukemans confirmed that he has fully recovered from his migraine attack of last weekend.

"Stijn called me to say that he trained well, that it is all coming in order again. The swelling on his knee is gone, and he feels a lot less pain. We still have to wait and make sure it stays that way the next few days," Bomans told sportwereld.be.

Devolder said, "I had an easy training without too much strain on the knee. It has been getting better since the weekend. The doctor said however that the cartilage is not yet fully healed after my crash 11 days ago. If it all goes well, then I can do a last heavy duration training on Tuesday or Wednesday. Then I will give it my all on Sunday for the very last time this season."
