  7. 11 a.m. 01. Deceuninck-Quick Step can bet on several horses. At Deceuninck-Quick Step they are counting on Hodeg, Keisse, Sénéchal, Steels, Steimle, Stybar and Van Lerberghe this afternoon. Wilfried Peeters therefore has several irons in the fire for Dwars door het Hageland. “We have a few candidates. I am thinking of Zdenek Stybar, who drove perfectly last week. Bert Van Lerberghe also had a good preparation, just like Florian Sénéchal. Jannik Steimle has already proven that he can do well on Belgian soil. Al is he still young and still needs to gain some experience. ” Compared to previous years, the course has been adjusted on a number of points. “A few cobblestone zones have been left out. The passages on the sand strips are manageable and also flat. Unfortunately, the Grasbos has disappeared because road works are underway there. The finish is still at the Citadel of Diest. A place I know. because I used to train for that when I was a junior. ” .

  9. 12 hours 12. No Pedersen on Hageland roads. Trek-Segafredo will descend tomorrow without world champion Mads Pedersen to Dwars door het Hageland. The world champion had vowed to participate in this race, but a fall in the Tour of Poland means that Pedersen has to recover a bit longer than expected. “Mads has crashed in the Tour of Poland and the recovery is not going as fast as we had initially anticipated. It is true that Mads would have liked to ride this Dwars door het Hageland, but we do not want to take any risks and that is why he is prescribed extra rest. His next race will be the national championship of Denmark “, team director Steven de Jongh reports. .

  12. 15 hours 59. Passage to basilica Scherpenheuvel deleted. There is also no longer a passage at the basilica of Scherpenheuvel-Zichem. “This at the request of Mayor Manu Claes van Scherpenheuvel-Zichem”, organizer Nuyens explains. “We make a conscious detour there to avoid crowds there. It is still a holiday and the basilica is a tourist attraction par excellence. You always have a lot of people there anyway. The detour means that we have a total of 187 race kilometers. come, a little more than expected. ” .
  13. 15 hours 56. Only 17 teams at the start in Aarschot. There will be 3 fewer teams at the start of Dwars door het Hageland on Saturday. Rally Cycling, Nippo Delko Provenco and Canyon-DHB will not travel to Aarschot. Organizer Nick Nuyens gave a word of explanation about the cancellations. “At first Rally Cycling called it quits. They didn’t want to make the switch from America anymore. After that, Canyon-DHB and Nippo Delko Provence followed. There are quite a few Romanians and Portuguese in their framework. If they come to Belgium, they have to. quarantine them for two weeks and that would undermine the rest of their cycling season. ” .
