Michael Vanthourenhout is back after his food poisoning. Thursday morning departure, the rider of Marlux – Bingoal with the rest of the Belgian team in the direction of the Danish Bogense for the world CHAMPIONSHIPS cyclocross. After his food poisoning from Saturday, he could Tuesday and Wednesday, re-firm training, so let his team know.
The 25-year-old Vanthourenhout had Saturday in the hospital to be examined after he during a ministage with the national team a food poisoning had been damaged. Therefore, he missed the wereldbekercross in Hoogerheide and also Monday revealed he has yet the old.
“But since Tuesday, I feel there is nothing more,” said Vanthourenhout. “Tuesday, I’m training behind the scooter. Today in the forest on the Kluisberg. That was necessary, because the test that I made during the cross in Hoogerheide had wanted to do after many long wegtrainingen, fell away. Good training in the field was necessary. From now on the quiet train to the world cup.”
Hoogerheide miss did the rider pain. “I was fourth in a classification to which I attach great importance. By my package, I fell to eight. That cost me a lot of money too. That cross would make me also have: difficult, quite technical. Healthy I definitely can compete for top five, I think. But my health was now once for. I have Sunday almost the whole day sleeping. My body was clearly a little unsettled.”
“I have a cross skipped: therefore, I am slightly fresher, and that has me maybe not poorly done. On the other hand, I’m also a little crossritme lost. So it is still a bit of wait and see what the Sunday shows,” concludes Vanthourenhout, well last year for world CHAMPIONSHIPS silver after Wout van Aert.
