Dutch national coach Gerben de Knegt Sunday, his selection for the world CHAMPIONSHIPS cyclo-cross, the next weekend, in their own country in Valkenburg published. Spearhead Mathieu van der Poel, the men of the company of Lars van der haar, Corne van Kessel, David van der Poel and Stan Godrie. For the women, Marianne Vos and Thalita de Jong, despite health problems.
The Knegt Vos and De Jong, both of which kwakkelden with their health, are included in the five that the Netherlands represents. Sevenfold world champion Vos took a rest after they are around old and new was hindered by a persistent cold. We feared that they are not fit in time for the world cup, but with her comeback in Hoogerheide ended, the Dutch fourth. The Young, world champion in 2016, has had a year full of injuries and rode the past few weeks just a few veldritten. The Dutch female team consists of national champion Lucinda Brand, Maud Kaptheijns and Annemarie Worst.
“Mathieu van der Poel in Hoogerheide again proven that he is ready for the world cup,” said De Knegt. “Also his brother David shows that his form is excellent. Lars van der haar and Corné van Kessel after an off-day in Nommay revenge taken and shown to be ready for the world cup in their own country.”
Also about his vrouwenselectie is De Knegt satisfied. “Marianne Vos has today her class is shown and will this week, with the last dots on the i’s. I am also glad that Thalita de Jong fit again. A former world champion is sure to be a strengthening of the selection. We can use these selection next week, especially to participate for the stage.”
