Aussie Simon Gerrans Out Of Milan-San Remo


MILAN, March 22, 2014 (AFP) – Australia’s Simon Gerrans has pulled out of
Sunday’s Milan-San Remo race due to illness, his Oreca team said Saturday.

“Simon became ill during the night and he is in no shape to take part in
one of the season’s longest races,” said team director, Matt White.

Gerrans, the 2012 champion, has been replaced in the team by compatriot
Brett Lancaster.

Belgium’s Tom Boonen pulled out of the race in midweek after his partner
had a miscarriage.
