Worlds Nomination

2016-09-28
As you may know, I was having some stomach problems before Eneco. Unfortunately it turned out to be worse than I thought. At Eneco it was also not yet good. The time trial went well, but in the road stages, there were problems on the longer distances with the energy intake and nourishing the muscles. So as a precautionary measure I abandoned the race and let myself be thoroughly checked out again. A stomach irritation was found, but it is doing better already and I am confident for the Worlds.

I am looking forward to Qatar and am happy that I can start there. The nomination of Andre and me opens up more chances for us in the race, but also presents us all with a challenge and new experiences. Together with John Degenkolb, we are three strong sprinters and all of us belong among the favorites. That makes our team difficult for the other nations to figure out. At the same time, it gives us more options, in case one of us has a bad day or suffers a crash or mechanical problem. And Dege is, for example, a real winning rider out of a group. We will do our best to make the most out of this luxury problem.
