Biniam Girmay Wins Gent-Wevelgem, First African Champion!

“We will have a rosy future”

“That’s unbelievable. I did not expect that to win such a race,” Girmay said after his coup and sees a great future for the African cycling: “It will change a lot. We will have a rosy future.”

Girmay had already written history at the World Cup last year when he went to the podium in his second place in the U-23 race. The 21-year-old had come through the development program of the World Association UCI in profirad sports. In the middle of last year, the change in the WorldTour followed the Belgian Team Intermarché-Wanty Gobert.

Girmays strong cycling year

This year, Girmay started properly. In Mallorca he won the race in Alcudia. This was followed by strong appearances at Milan-Sanremo (10th) and the E3 Prize (5th). At the Flanders tour he does not want to start next weekend. “I miss my wife, my daughter. I want to go home first.”

Van Aert does not matter in the decision

All eyes were directed on all-rounder Van Aert. And the Belgian, who had only won the E3 prize in Harelbei on Friday, started an attack at Kemmelberg at the last climb. But the rivals did not let the Olympia-second did not pull this time.

A good role had played a long time Nikia’s Arndt. The 30-year-old belonged to a breakout group, which had been placed over 65 kilometers before the target.

World Cup qualification: No yellow lock in European playoff

The players of the twelve participants in the European Qualification Playoffs to the Soccer World Cup go without the risk of a threatening yellow lock for the finals in the games in March.


The World Association FIFA confirmed a report of the news agency AP, according to which individual warnings are deleted from the group stage of the qualification. This means that no national player would miss a possible final game around the ticket for the finals in Qatar (21 November to 18 December) because of a semi-final warning.

The twelve nations, including European champion Italy and Portugal, play in six semi-finals at the end of March in three finals. The winners of the finals create the jump to the World Cup, which takes place at the end of the year in Qatar. Already locked players who saw two yellow cards in the group stage, however, do not benefit from the scheme. This concerns, for example, star players Latin Ibrahimović, which — when nominated would be missing Sweden in the semi-final against the Czech Republic.
