A slight injury prevents Marianne Vos's plans to participate in the mixed team relay event at the European Championship cycling in Alkmaar on Wednesday. She has informed the Dutch national coach Loes Gunnewijk (KNWU) of her opting out.
“If I race in the time trial position, I suffer from a slight irritation in the gluteal muscles. I had to make a choice in view of the road race on Saturday. It is better not to provoke the body too much now”, says Marianne.
Riejanne Markus will participate on behalf of CCC-Liv on Wednesday.
