Painful current range: 35-year-old wegkapitein of Belgian cycling team will stop racing because of heart problems

Grégory Habeaux (35) due to medical reasons decided to stop as professional cyclist. The wegkapitein of WB-Aqua Protect-Veranclassic jogged since november with heart rhythm disorders. A painful topical since the death of Michael Goolaerts after a heart failure during Paris-Roubaix…

Since november jogged Grégory Habeaux with cardiac arrhythmias. After further investigations turned out to stop the only right option. He will remain active in the WB-Aqua Protect-Veranclassic-group, where his long professional experience will continue to pass.

“The decision to stop was hard but inescapable,” says Gregory Habeaux. “I got a warning in november but failed to investigate afterwards and even got a green light, but I felt quickly that I was not on level was able to return. I had a new weak point in Paris-Troyes and in training in march. I then did my breathing exercises, I let my bike fall, and said: ‘I stop’. Out of prudence.”
