Mathieu van der Poel set to race Kuurne-Brussel-Kuurne



Mathieu van der Poel will return to racing at Sunday’s Kuurne-Brussel-Kuurne, his Alpecin-Fenix team has announced. He will not, however, take part in the first leg of the opening weekend, Saturday’s Omloop Het Nieuwsblad.

The Dutchman was part of the team which left this week’s UAE Tour following stage 1 after a staff member tested positive for COVID-19. Speculation about his chances of racing Omloop mounted almost immediately upon his exit from the race, which Van der Poel had led after winning the opening stage.
