Rebellin to miss Tour
Davide Rebellin
Rebellin clinched a hat-trick of classics in April
World Cup leader Davide Rebellin has revealed he will not compete in this year's Tour de France.

The Italian wants to prepare for the 2004 World Road Championship in Verona and the closing World Cup events in August and September.

Rebellin won all three north European one-day classics earlier this year.

"I decided to give up the additional engagement in the Tour and concentrate on a possible World Cup victory," the 33-year-old said.

In April, Rebellin won the Amstel Gold race, the Fleche-Wallone spring classic and and the Liege-Bastogne-Liege race.
