Biniam Girmay withdraws from the World Championship in Glasgow

Biniam Girmay won’t line up for the road World Championships in Glasgow this Sunday. The 23 year old Eritrean rider has to withdraw from the selection following a bad crash in the Clasica San Sebastián last Saturday. The vice World Champion in the U23 category in Leuven crash at a speed of more than 60 kilometer per hour and suffers from contusions and pain in the hip, preventing him from defending his chances at the Elite World Championships.

“I’m of course very disappointed to withdraw from the selection for the World Championships, which were a main goal for this season since last winter. I had a good feeling after the Tour de France, but my crash in the Clasica San Sebastián caused too severe pain to be able to defend my chances in the worlds. My priority is now to recover from this crash and then the preparation for the last part of the season, with nice goals in one day races such as the Grand Prix de Plouay and Canadian classics.”
