After missing Fleche Wallone Dylan Teuns also forced to skip Liege-Bastogne-Liege: "Next goal is the Tour de Suisse"

Last year's winner of La Fleche Wallone, Dylan Teuns was forced to skip the defence of his title this year after a persistent bout of flu. Now it seems the Israel - Premier Tech rider will also be forced to miss Liege-Bastogne-Liege.

"So he wasn't on his bike for about ten days, so it doesn't make sense to ride such a tough classic," says the Israel - Premier Tech sports director and former Fleche Wallone winner in his own right, Rik Verbrugghe. “We now let Dylan calmly rebuild the condition."

In Teuns absence Michael Woods was the best-performing Israel - Premier Tech rider, finishing in a very respectable fourth place. For Teuns now it's all about recovery. "We do this, among other things, by including an altitude training camp in Andorra," Verbrugghe reveals.

"His next goal is the Tour de Suisse," the sports director continues. "That and the Tour de France are the new targets,”he concludes.
