No glory for Etixx-QuickStep in Scheldeprijs

The Scheldeprijs is an odd race. The midweek semi-classic has a special spot on the racing calendar between the Tour of Flanders and Paris-Roubaix. Every year several top sprinters head over to Antwerp to contest the predicted bunch sprint. For a team like Etixx-QuickStep, the race comes at a bad moment as they’re fully focusing on the two bigger classics, and a crash in the build-up to the bunch sprint at Scheldeprijs could take out one of their top riders.
