Ill Nacer Bouhanni taken out of Volta a Catalunya by Cofidis

Nacer Bouhanni will not take part in the remainder of the Volta a Catalunya. The Frenchman is still suffering from bronchitis and was taken out of the race by his team Cofidis.

Bouhanni was said to be fit enough to take part in the Spanish race, despite suffering from bronchitis ahead of the start. The sprinter was unable to compete for the top spots in the opening stage, finishing the bunch sprint in seventh place.

The bronchitis has been an ongoing problem for the Frenchman since having had to abandon Paris-Nice for the same reason earlier this month.

Cofidis now prefers its rider to take some rest and recover 100 percent ahead of his next goals.
