Out of Milan-Sanremo

Seven-time Tour de France winner Lance Armstrong will not be able to participate in Milan-Sanremo, the second ProTour event of the 2010 season. The Team RadioShack leader, suffering from acute gastroenteritis, will be replaced by teammate Fumiyuki Beppu. “It would have been good to have Lance lineup for the start but we prefer not to take any risk,” commented Team Director Johan Bruyneel. “It would not be very intelligent to let him start in a race of almost 300 K, while not being healthy.”
The Team line-ups for the next races:
Milan-Sanremo (Ita), 20/03/2010
Riders: Fumiyuki Beppu, Daryl Impey, Markel Irizar, Geoffroy Lequatre, Dmitriy Muravyev, Gregory Rast, Sébastien Rosseler & Tomas Vaitkus
Director: Johan Bruyneel
Volta a Catalunya (Spa), 20/03/2010
Riders: Jani Brajkovic, Daryl Impey, Andreas Klöden, Levi Leipheimer, Jason McCartney, Bjørn Selander, Tomas Vaitkus & Haimar Zubeldia
