De­genkolb out of worlds

Global Times US Edition - - SPORTS -

Ger­man team leader John De­genkolb has pulled out of the world cham­pi­onships in Ber­gen, Nor­way with a res­pi­ra­tory prob­lem. “I won’t start in Ber­gen,” De­genkolb wrote on his Face­book page on Sun­day.

The 28-year-old pulled out of both the Tour de France and the Vuelta a Es­pana this year, the lat­ter be­cause of bron­chi­tis.

De­genkolb won clas­sics as di­verse as the pan­cake flat Mi­lan-SanRemo and the rough and tum­ble Paris-Roubaix with its cob­bled sec­tions.
