RIDERS

Albert Timmer Max Walscheid

Max Walscheid unfortunately has to postpone his Paris-Roubaix debut as a result of injuries sustained from his crash at Scheldeprijs on Wednesday. Team Sunweb’s line up for the Hell of the North contains a wealth of cobblestone experience as Albert Timmer replaces Walscheid.

Team Sunweb Physician Anko Boelens said: “Max crashed hard and has lost a lot of skin, especially on his back. He is also experiencing some neck pain which is causing him some discomfort so we made the decision to take him out of the race to give him time to recover.”
