Giant-Alpecin hope Kittel can return for Tour de Yorkshire

Giant-Alpecin hope that Marcel Kittel will be able to return to racing for the Tour de Yorkshire next month. Kittel was meant to be riding Scheldeprijs this Wednesday, where he has won the last three editions, but pulled out earlier this week due to illness. It is the third consecutive race that Kittel has pulled out of but the team denied that the latest setback would disrupt his preparation for the Tour de France in July.
