Cofidis’ sprinter Nacer Bouhanni is revising his scheduled and will now race Nokere Koerse. The Frenchman abandoned the first stage of Paris-Nice amidst brutal weather conditions.
“On Paris-Nice, I really went to the end of my strength,” he said. “It’s never a pleasure to give up. It was necessary to review the approach of Milan-Sanremo.”
The team said Bouhanni has spent the past few days recovering from illness that resulted from riding in the weather at Paris-Nice.
“I recovered my feeling on the bike. I will do a big training ride on Saturday and I will be at Nokere Koerse Wednesday. I am looking forward to watching my teammates at Paris-Nice and I am looking forward to see them again.”
