Van Petegem uncertain about Amstel

Peter Van Petegem will start in the Scheldeprijs Vlaanderen today. "We absolutely want to win something. All opportunities we get to do so, we'll grab," team director Herman Frison told HNB. But it's not yet certain whether Van Petegem will also be on the start line of the Amstel Gold Race on Sunday.

"The pain, caused by a cyst on my buttocks hasn't got less because of the bumpy ride over the cobbles," said Van Petegem. "I'll decide after riding the Scheldeprijs if I'll stretch my spring campaign a bit longer. If not, I'll get operated on right away."
