Greg Van Avermaet seems finally to have recovered from the equilibrium problems he suffered as a result of a virus he picked up in the Ruta del Sol last month and which have kept him out of competition since then. The Silence-Lotto rider will return to the peloton tomorrow in Nokere Koerse, "and if he does well, he will start in Milano-Sanremo," team manager Marc Sergeant told hln.be. "The 300 kilometres will be good for him and give him confidence for the spring."

His team-mate Mario Aerts, who dropped out of Paris-Nice on Thursday, will not be able to ride in the Primavera on Saturday, but Johan Vansummeren, who left Paris-Nice because of tendonitis, is expected to race.
