Chocolate milk with whipped cream and ice is a delight everywhere. After a successful cyclo-cross winter with his sixth world title as one of the highlights, Mathieu van der Poel (29 years old) has had his belt removed. After the World Cup, the Dutch versatile player went on a skiing holiday to Austria with his girlfriend Roxanne Bertels.
He won thirteen races out of fourteen, including the world title in Tabor – the main goal of the winter. Then you deserve a break. Matthew van der Poel is taking a week off after a successful cycling campaign and has gone to a ski resort, as seen on Instagram. To start building physically and mentally refreshed towards the spring classics.
Does the team allow this, given the risk of falling and breaking body parts, to hear you think out loud? Yes, this is allowed. In the past, some passenger contracts sometimes included a ban on performing certain other dangerous (sporting) activities. At present, common sense prevails on all sides. Drivers are released, provided they inform their team in advance of their plans.
It remains unclear which road race Van der Poel will resume in – more news will follow in a week, when his program will be announced. It seems certain that the world champion will start his spring in Italy, in Stradie Bianchi, Tirreno-Adriatico or Milan-San Remo. He heard in Tabor that the classic Van der Poel spring would be “short, but powerful.”
