The 116th edition of the ‘Hell of the North’ was held last Sunday and it was a true spectacle fully crowded with amazing fans. But it was also a black day for cycling. Twenty-three-year-old Belgian rider Michael Goolaerts (Veranda’s Willems-Crelan) has died after going into cardiac arrest during the race. Cycling family will miss him! R.I.P., Michael! TKA rider Nils Politt was able to cross the velodrome finish line in Roubaix in seventh place, taking the sprint from the second chasing group behind winner Peter Sagan.
