Kittel Looking Fine For Scheldeprijs

| Comments Off on Kittel Looking Fine For Scheldeprijs

German sprint great Kittel (Marcel) is all geared up to come up with a good fight & defend the title at the Scheldeprijs race this week. His participation in the upcoming race would mark his long-awaited return in the pro cycling field post his illness.

Maecel has been absent from the competition for more than a month now. He last raced at the Qatar Tour in the month of February. His team Giant-Alpecin informed that the German rider is down with a virus attack.

“I do not know about the exact type of virus & honestly I do not feel that our doctor too knew about it but it came with a fever & he was very sick for few days”, stated Rudi Kemna, the head coach from Marcel’s team.

“Post the race, Marcel had a bad feeling with his body & power”, added the coach. “We did not want Marcel to get back too fast. It is better to come when you can actually feel good & it is looking good now.”

The renowned Flanders classic is one of the most coveted races for the sprinters such as 3-time champ Mark Cavendish, Marcel Kittel, Alexander Kristoff and Andre Greipel. Ironically, the Etixx-QuickStep rider Cavendish has not been included on the start-list of riders for this race. (more…)

In one of his latest interview sessions with BBC, Lance stated that he felt really bad for Sir Bradley, who triumphed the 2012 Tour France, just prior to USDA’s exhaustive report highlighting Armstrong’s doping issues.

“I am really sorry & I do agree that given the very timing of the incidents, I am the who is responsible”, Armstrong was quoted in his BBC interview. USADA’s decision (reasoned) came out just after 2012 Tour France and hence it’s natural to have several questions in 2013- the very year where Chris Froome stunned everybody with his exceptional performance.
