The Danish Bogense is preparing for the world cup cyclo-cross in the afternoon. It is mainly to watch out for Mathieu Van der Poel. In a fall last week in Gavere hurt the European champion is at the knee, and it was until Thursday, unsure if he was to Denmark could travel. Finally he got still green light. But it was precisely on the last training yesterday, Van der Poel again to the knee hit.
“A stupid mistake” he fell again on the annexed knee with a wire separation. “Fortunately, it was sufficiently healed,” she said. “I just need to be careful that me will not the same happen to you.” This: the trail in Bogense – that his debut as a cross at the top level, has – is as disappointing experience. The location right next to the Nordic sea is wonderful, just about all crossers regret that there is too much need to be walked.
Due to the heavy surface and the angled bends on the steep sections all the speed out of it, to the riders on just about all of the technical sections of the bike. In the junior and the promises of the race was this morning already driven. When the juniors took the victory to the Czech Tomas Kopecky and was Jarno Bellens on the fifth place, the best Belgian. The promises took Pidcock for Iserbyt.
