Meeusen pulled from Worlds

Skinny tyres, drop handlebars and mud. Lots of mud.

An article to go with this news. This makes the U23 race even more wide open than before, as Van der Poel and van Aert are racing in the elites.

What an utter joke. Two years ago the UCI already benched him, keeping him out of the World Cup and Worlds, and now they are going to do it again for the exact same fricking investigation?! Mother****ers

I feel bad for Sweeck. With Van Aert and van der Poel racing elites, U23 was his for the taking.

At that time he was only cited in the affair as a witness. I thought it was a massive violation of the presumption of innocence. If you are a witness, you are not suspected.

I don't know how the case has evolved but it seems there was no new element, so I think at this point, it's a blatant injustice. Support for Tom.

Good news that they will be able to race after all. Worlds is going to be great this year.
