In Short:
1. Doping Suspect: "A long-running investigation into their doctor, who is accused of providing illegal ozone treatments to athletes. Tom Meeusen, one of the top favourites for the elite race, Laurens Sweeck, the favourite for the U23 race, and former world champion Bart Wellens have been deemed ineligible under UCI rules because of their connection to the case."
2. Meeusen frustrated: "[It is] painful that I cannot defend my rights/opportunities on both a human and sporting level. #unfair."
3. Elite Belgian team: Kevin Pauwels, Wout Van Aert, Klaas Vantornout, Sven Nys, Rob Peeters, Gianni Vermeersch  and Tim Merlier. Reserves: Jens Adams and Joeri Adams.
4. U23 Belgium team - Sweek out: Toon Aerts, Quinten Hermans, Yannick Peeters, Diether Sweeck, Michael Vanthrouenhout and Daan Soete.
