Van der Poel is not on Omloop Het Niewsblad's pre-list

The Dutchman does not appear on the provisional list prior to this Saturday's classic after leaving the UAE Tour. However, his team has not yet confirmed the line-up.


The presence of Mathieu Van der Poel in the Omloop Het Nieuwsblad after his abandonment in the UAE Tour after the positive of a member of the Alpecin-Fenix staff, remains unknown less than two days before the start of the classics.

This Wednesday a provisional list of participants was published for the Omloop Het Nieuwsblad and in the Alpecin-Fenix the name of Jasper Philipsen did appear ... but not that of Mathieu Van der Poel. However, their presence in the test has not yet been ruled out, as the team has not yet revealed their official line-up.

It should be noted that Van der Poel underwent the coronavirus test this Monday after the positive of the team staff member, with whom he had no close contact, and tested negative, so that that same day he was able to fly from the United Arab Emirates United to Amsterdam and possibly awaiting the results of a final test to see if it could be from the game or not this Saturday at the first contact with the cobblestones.

2021 will be a very special season for Van der Poel as the current Tour of Flanders champion will seek to continue adding successes on the cobblestones and conquer the other two great events on the cobblestones that still remain: Ghent-Wevelgem and Paris-Roubaix , a race for which the Alpecin-Fenix has been confirmed this Wednesday by the organization and where Van der Poel will seek his first triumph in the 'Hell of the North'.
