Cycling, no Scheldeprijs for Israel-Premier Tech: it will not be replaced


The problems due to Covid continue at Israel-Premier Tech . The Israeli team, which had already failed to participate in the Tour of Flanders yesterday, must also pull out of the Scheldeprijs 2022 , a Belgian race that takes place in the province of Antwerp and scheduled the day after tomorrow, April 6.

There are still too many absences in Israel, which currently has six riders engaged in the Tour of the Basque Country: we are talking about Sebastian Berwich, Alexander Cataford, Alessandro De Marchi, Hugo Houle, James Piccoli and Michael Woods, among the few left ‘saved’ from Covid .

The organization of Scheldeprijs 2022, on behalf of the great boss Jack Vissers, told Nieuwsblad what happened, announcing that there will be no replacement for the team, among others, by Chris Froome: ” There is no time to make sure a replacement for the team. We received a message from them telling us they don’t have enough riders to fill the startlist. We’re with them, it’s really hard for the group right now. Wednesday we will start with 21 teams, of which 9 with World Tour license “.

Paris-Roubaix 2022, Gianni Moscon will not be there: “My condition is below zero”

Representing the international cycling greats will therefore be Quick Step-Alpha Vinyl, Lotto-Soudal, Intermarché-Wanty-Gobert, Bora-Hansgrohe, Cofidis, BikeExchange-Jayco, Team DSM, Trek-Segafredo and UAE Team Emirates.
