I feel really sorry to miss @AmgenTOC. Was so motivated for this nice race which should have been my goal of 2019. Now we just look forward, evaluate when I can start riding my bike again and set new goals from there.
We owe you an explanation regarding our Top GC Rider @hermansben . Ben was selected to lead us in the #AmgenTOC But his crash knee injury in #flechewallonne has took him out. Will miss you Ben, but will go harder to overcome the loss!
So that’s how my knee looks like after 100km of @flechewallonne Got quite some stitches in there and have no idea how long it takes before I can go back on the bike. At least there is nothing broken at first sight. 🙏🏻 Thanks to all people helping me out 🤜🏻
We feel for @hermansben who came to #FlecheWallonne with so much hopes and motivation to succeed. For his team, himself, his fans. Coincidentally, we met them a few min before his crash. Touching. Get well Ben!
Some close family support to push me to my first podium of the year at voltalimburgclassic today 👍🏻 Big thanks also to my @yallaACADEMY team mates for the hard work all day 🙌🏻 https://t.co/MMltTqjUIg
