Biniyam Jirmay, 23, will not be seen at the World Cycling Championships in Glasgow on Sunday. The Eritrean star fell badly in the San Sebastian Classic last weekend and will not travel to Scotland. Earlier, there were also reports of visa problems for Jermay, who was unable to enter the UK.
Jermay fell badly in the Clásica San Sebastian on Saturday. The 23-year-old racer from Intermarché-Circus-Wanty crashed at more than 60 kilometers per hour and suffered several bruises and a sore hip.
The vice world champion among the reserves at the World Cup Leuven in 2021 has to lose the World Cup in Glasgow. “Obviously I’m very disappointed, because I’ve set this World Cup as one of my main goals this season since last winter.”
“I had a good feeling after the Tour de France, but my fall in San Sebastian caused me a lot of pain and I was unable to participate in the World Cup. My priority now is my recovery and preparation for the final part of the season, including more major championships.” Blueway Award and Canadian Classics.
Visa problems with the Eritrean team
It remains to be seen whether Jermain will be able to participate in the World Cup without injury. After all, several reports emerged on Wednesday about visa issues with the Eritrean team. Jermay, among others, could have been denied access to Scotland, which is part of the United Kingdom.
