No Pozzato in Haribo

Filippo Pozzato (Quick.Step) will not participate in tomorrow's Classic Haribo, as he is still recovering from the 'flu. "In agreement with the medical staff, we decided not to accelerate my return to competition in order to prevent a possible relapse," said Pozzato. "Compared to the start of the week, I feel a lot better, but I have an annoying cough when I force the pace, and I prefer to get over it completely before resuming racing."

Marc Lotz will replace Pozzato in Quick.Step's line up in Haribo. Pozzato himself expects to be back racing in the GP Chiasso in Switzerland next weekend.
