Cyclist Daan Olivier should his career end. The 26-year-old Dutchman of Jumbo-Visma struggling since a fall last year with a knee injury by the companies of sports worsens. The Tour of the Basque country, where he is in the fourth stage got off, his last race, reports his team Thursday.
“During the Ruta del Sol, I noticed that the knee after many times hard starting and high-power drive began to play,” says Olivier. “It was not improving. During the first stage of the Tour of the Basque country, I felt that the symptoms were aggravated. Now I’m come to realise that the past few months fighting against the bierkaai’ve had. To my regret has long-term rehabilitation yielded nothing.”
Olivier was previously part of the opleidingsploeg of Rabobank and reed in 2014 and 2015 for Giant-Shimano. In 2017, he came to the Lotto-Jumbo, current Jumbo Visma, which he that year in the Tour of Spain reed. “Stop cycling hurts and is unreal. The sport has a lot to me. I am grateful for the fact that I am eleven years as a part of the cycling world I may be.” (belga)
