VDB to skip Belgian classics

Frank Vandenbroucke (MrBookmaker.com-Sportstech) has decided to skip the Belgian spring classics due to a lack of condition. VDB, who injured his foot and was sentenced to 200 hours of community service at the start of winter, made the announcement last Thursday, saying that, "It has been too long since I have trained, it makes no sense to force it. I will not be there for the opening weekend of the Belgian season. But the season has just started. There are still some very nice races in May and June."

I will give this guy all of the leeway in the world if he can just show us a few more glimpses of 1998/99. I hope he can reach that level again and finally defeat his greatest adversary: himself.

I read this and my first thought was, "I hope Bookmaker was smart enough to pay this guy by the race".

This being his sixth team in five years...I would have to agree.
