Cav to miss Scheldeprijs

Mark Cavendish will miss Belgian one-day race Scheldeprijs due to illness.

The three-time winner missed Gent-Wevelgem and Three Days of De Panne last week through illness and is again unable to take to the start line on Wednesday.

"I am sad to miss a race that is very close to my heart, my first win as a professional," Cavendish said in an Omega Pharma-QuickStep media release.
