Also Filip women’s race, coach in the mountain bike, was made Monday afternoon to be present in the Beobank Pro Center in Sint-Agatha-Berchem to look forward to 2019, a pre-olympic year. The former world champion and zilverenmedaillewinnaar on the Play, with the eye on the Olympic Games in Tokyo, are moderately positive about the Belgian bikers.
“We hope to be in Tokyo with one female and two male mountain bikers at the start to” put women’s race from the shore. “Simplon Michiels makes its results are normally seen for her own ticket. A second female mountainbikester in Tokyo to the left is virtually impossible. Simplon state national currently on a lonely height. I would incidentally stress again how a penalty, madam, ” I her find. They won last year on her 35th bronze at the european CHAMPIONSHIPS, and is actually currently at the peak in her career.”
“What the men are concerned, we hope to be two participants in the Play, ‘ women’s race further. “Jens Schuermans time being, there is with a bullet at number one in our country. He must be at least a toptiennotering can get in Tokyo, otherwise I will be disappointed. I actually wear it on for the top five. A medal is a bit exaggerated, that is not realistic. A downside to Schuermans is his blessuregevoeligheid. That puts a brake on the training. Behind him you have Kevin Panhuysen, Ruben Scheire and Pierre de Froidmont. These are the four riders that were in the running for an olympic ticket.”
For the olympic title will no Belgian eligible. The Swiss rider Nino Schurter, six times world champion in the past seven years, seems to be the big favorite, but there is women’s race the not totally agree. “I put Mathieu van der Poel at the top. He is my favourite for the olympic title. He definitely has the capabilities. I expect also a quick course in Tokyo, completely on the glove.”
