There is a small change of plans for my next races. Unfortunately two days ago I could not participate in the Kampioenschap van Vlaanderen nor today at the GP Impanis-van Petegem. My condition is not such that I can competitively race. After the Tour of Poland I simply hoped for better legs, but that didn’t happen. I have noticed that my form is unstable and after the high point in Poland, it went downhill again. That mainly lay on the fact that I have missed so many kilometers this year. The virus at the beginning of the year cost me many racing kilometers. I miss them now and so unfortunately I do not expect any kind of outstanding performance from me this year.
However, I decided together with my team to ride a few more races. I just want to be with the guys again and bring the season to as good an end as possible. As of Wednesday I will ride two one-day races in Belgium. And of course you will see me at the Münsterland Giro. Now it is mainly important to me to get race kilometers, which will be good for me next year. I hope that I can go into the season break with a good form. They say, that the better you go into the break, the better you come out of it and then can start your season preparations at a good level without any start-up problems.
