Mathieu van der Poel (Corendon-Circus) resumes this weekend in the league, so made his team management Friday known. The Dutch champion gave Wednesday, in default of appearance for the Kasteelcross of Maldegem with stomach and intestinal problems.
“Mathieu had after the world cup suffer from the stomach and the intestines. Therefore, we decided not to make it start in Maldegem. In Lille, he is there. That is a cross that he likes to drive and wants to Mathieu again in full career”, sports director Christoph Roodhooft. “Or he sufficiently recovered? For me that is also an open question. Sunday follows Hoogstraten. Until further notice, jonathan Mathieu van der Poel so this weekend.”
The Krawatencross of Lille count for the DVV Verzekeringen Trophy. In that ranked Mathieu van der Poel in the lead with 7:34 ahead of Toon Aerts.
