Again no Jens Keukeleire at Lotto Soudal Wednesday in Dwars door Vlaanderen. Keukeleire is still sick and the chances are that he is still the Tour of Flanders is getting smaller.
“This week, Jens Keukeleire still fever. Yet, there was a blood test done but did not deliver the hoped-for result”, began Frederik Willems. “Sunday I tried Jens Keukeleire what mileage to grind, but that he would not be so well obtained. It is waiting to see how everything is going with him. We view the matter from day to day before making a final decision for his eventual participation in the Tour of Flanders.”
With Jens Debusschere and Jelle Wallays has Lotto Soudal Wednesday two ex-winners on board. “The course that the riders Wednesday under the wheels pushed get, you can in nothing compare with the previous editions”, he continued, Frederik Willems. “Friday was Tiesj Benoot strong in the E3 Harelbeke, and we were collectively well active. In Gent-Wevelgem was Jens Debusschere heavily underway. Wait and see how the weather conditions are, but one expects a lot of wind and rain. That will be the only but heavier on in a course that is more balled up together in comparison with previous editions.”
