Re: The Mathieu Van der Poel Appreciation Thread

Big disillusion for Mathieu in Andorra. Right from the start, the legs were acid. He deliberately chose not to force himself and did not finish. A real shame given the fact he pulled out of the Slag om Norg to defend his 3 place at the World Cup ranking.

Altitude might be the cause of it.

Nino Schurter won the event ahead of Mathias Flückiger and Jordan Sarrou. Poor performances by the Belgians: Jens Schuermans only 15th. Ruben Scheire very disappointing 38th.

Yana Belomoina won the women's event ahead of Annika Langvad.

Mathieu Van der Poel will race next Sunday in Lenzerheide, Switzerland. I'm wondering if he's taking part in the Dutch Nats in Landgraaf on 16 July ???
