Philippe Gilbert out of Tour of Flanders with physical and mental fatigue


Philippe Gilbert (Lotto Soudal) has pulled out of the Tour of Flanders and will take a period of rest due to mental and physical fatigue. 

The 38-year-old, who won the Tour of Flanders in 2017, was a non-finisher at both E3 Saxo Bank Classic and Gent-Wevelgem last week. He has struggled for form since the start of the season after his winter was dominated by rehabilitation from a knee injury sustained at last October’s Tour de France.
