Malade, Yves Lampaert will not participate in the European cycling championships, which will take place in Munich next week. Suffering since the end of the Tour de France, the winner of the inaugural time trial in Copenhagen is still not restored and has been forced to give up.

The Belgian team will be deprived of its leader in Munich. Yves Lampaert (31 years old) should have led Belgium at the European cycling championships, which will take place next week in Bavaria. Unfortunately for the first yellow jersey of the last Tour de France and its teammates in the national jersey, Lampaert will not be traveling to Germany. Sick since the end of this large loop which he had finished in 120th position (135 runners finished the race), at 4:46'14 ”by winner Jonas Vingegaard, the winner of the inaugural time trial of Copenhagen is still Not restored , announced Belgian coach Sven Vanthourenhout, interviewed Tuesday by the Belga agency five days before the online race for these European championships. The native of Iseghem will therefore not be there. Belgium will have to do without the Flandrian services for the online race scheduled on August 14 but also for the time trial, which will take place three days later. LAMPAERT, already the regretted leader of Belgium, should have aligned itself with the two events.

His replacement for online race is not yet known

with regard to the time, the big absent from the Belgian side meeting will not be replaced, has already announced the supervision of the Led by Sven Vanthourenhout. Rune HERREGODTS, representative of the Sport Vlaanderen-Baloise team) will therefore be the only Belgian to defend the colors of his country during the men's time of August 17. On the other hand, on the online race, and as the regulations want, a compatriot of Lampaert will take advantage of his absence to invite himself at the last minute on the starting line. It remains to be seen who, insofar as Jens Reyders, who should have been called as the first reservist registered on the list, will not be able to answer present either. At the same time, the herregodts teammate in the Vlaanderen-Baloise sport training jersey will indeed compete in the Norway Arctic Race. It will therefore be necessary to wait a little longer to know the name of the one who will have the heavy task of compensating the package of the Belgian number 1 on these European championships.
