PVP under the weather?

Speaking of the weather, pre-race favourite for the Tour of Flanders and winner in 1999 and 2003, Peter Van Petegem, was said to have been feeling under the weather, and decided not to start today's final double stage of the Driedaagse van De Panne.

"Peter is feeling a bit under the weather and has decided not to take risks with coming Sunday in mind," said Davitamon-Lotto PR-man Philip Demyttenaere. "He won't be starting in Thursday's last stage and the closing time-trial of the Three days de Panne."
