Hamilton, Museeuw to miss Paris-Nice; Tour to honor Pantani

www.cyclingnews.com | First Edition Cycling News for March 6, 2004

There's a lot of news in the latest update from cyclingnews.com.

Apparently, Tyler Hamilton is day-to-day to start Paris-Nice on Sunday, after spending Friday in bed with the flu. Master of the spring classics Johan Museeuw is also a late scratch from Paris-Nice with a back injury, and will probably ride Tirreno-Adriatico instead.

Also, the Tour will honor Marco Pantani in this year's time trial up l'Alpe d'Huez. Pantani holds the record for an ascent of the mountain, during a road stage in 1997.

Update 3/7/04: Hamilton lived up to his rep, and started Paris-Nice Sunday.
