Philippe Gilbert will miss Wednesday's reconnaissance ride for the Omloop Het Nieuwsblad with his Omega Pharma-Lotto team. The Belgian resides in Monaco and was unable to fly out today, due to a strike in French air traffic.

Additionally, German airline Lufthansa was on strike Monday and the regular schedule has not been resumed yet. The combination was responsible for a lot of flight cancellations in the last couple of days. Gilbert won't be able to join the team until Thursday.

Gilbert won the Omloop - formerly known as the Omloop Het Volk - in 2006 and 2008.
