Milan-San Remo: Dumoulin out with flu


Cyclingnews will have live coverage of Milan-San Remo from 8am GMT on Saturday, March 19.

Tom Dumoulin (Giant-Alpecin) has been ruled out of Milan-San Remo after coming down with a bout of flu ahead of the race. The Dutchman was heading into the race as a potential contender.

“It’s disappointing for me to miss one of the biggest classics of the season,” Dumoulin said in a team statement.

“It started at Paris-Nice. From Saturday to Sunday I had a sore throat and didn’t feel completely well during Sunday’s closing stage and once home it continued to get worse. It is a pity that I can’t start Milan-San Remo but I need to accept it. I hope I will be fit in time for Catalunya and in the coming days we will know more.”

Dumoulin will be replaced by teammate Bert de Debacker but the Dutchman’s absence comes as a major blow after they were already set to ride without defending champion John Degenkolb – the German still recovering from being hit by a car earlier in the year.
