Pozzato out of Tour Med

Filippo Pozzato (Quick.Step) has dropped out of the Tour Méditerranéen after waking up with a fever on the morning of yesterday's fourth stage. His team doctors decided to take him out of the race and fly him back to Alassio, Italy, where his teammates are preparing for the Trophée Laigueglia. "I'm disappointed to leave," Pozzato told French website velomania.net. "I had hoped to place well on the last stage to Marseille. Now I hope I'll be better for Laigueglia, a race I would really like to win," he added.
