Van Baarle out, Van Poppel in for Netherlands in Worlds road race

Dylan van Baarle (Cannondale-Drapac) is out of the Dutch team for the UCI Road World Championships road race next Sunday and will be replaced by Team Sky´s Danny van Poppel, according to a report on Sporza. Van Baarle crashed during stage 8 at the Tour of Britain on September 10 and will not be recovered enough to participate in the 260km circuit race in Bergen. `Dylan has too much trouble with his ribs,` Dutch coach Thorwald Veneberg told Sporza. `He is not convinced that he can appear 100 per cent fit at the start.`ADVERTISEMENT Van Poppel will add a new dimension to the Dutch team, which also includes Niki Terpstra (Quick-Step Floors), Tom Dumoulin (Team Sunweb), Jos van Emden (LottoNL-Jumbo), Sebastian Langeveld (Cannondale-Drapac), Bauke Mollema (Trek-Segafredo), Lars Boom (LottoNL-Jumbo), Wout Poels (Team Sky) and Koen de Kort (Trek-Segafredo). Van Poppel´s finishing kick, which has brought him two wins this year, could come in handy if there is a bunch sprint in the finale. `If I look at the selection of other countries like Italy, there is a chance that those countries will race for a sprint of a larger group,` Veneberg said. `That`s why I added one of our fast riders to my selection. He`s doing a technical route.` You can read more at Cyclingnews.com
