Pre-race favourite Marianne Vos will not race the Women's Tour of Flanders due to “health issues”, her team has confirmed.

Vos had been expected to start Sunday’s race, but CCC-Liv said that the 2013 champion was “not fit enough to start”. The team said her absence from the start line was not related to Covid-19 but did not elaborate further on her condition.
