Française des Jeux's Philippe Gilbert will not ride the Scheldeprijs on Wednesday this week, nor the Amstel Gold Race this coming weekend, his team has announced. The Belgian Classics contender will participate in the Flèche Wallonne on April 25, but "It's not one hundred percent decided whether he will ride Liege-Bastogne-Liege yet," team manager Marc Madiot told Sportwereld. "We will decide on it after Flèche Wallonne."

After the Ardennes Classics week, Gilbert will take a break, his next scheduled race being the 4 Jours de Dunkerque, May 8-13.
