With Tereza Neumanova another Liv Racing Xstra rider returns to racing. The Czech champion was side lined for two months, but will start in the Festival Elsy Jacobs which starts Friday the 29th of April.
The last couple of weeks Liv Racing Xstra was dealing with several ill or injured riders, but slowly the riders return to racing again. At the start of Festival Elsy Jacobs Czech champion Tereza Neumanova will be back in action. She was side lined with long covid for over two months and is happy to race again.
“The last two months were really hard for me. After the first race I had several covid symptoms, so I had to take some rest. I had covid before and worked hard to get back at a good level, so it was really disappointing to see that all hard work was for nothing at that moment. After a few weeks I could start training again. That was hard, because I still felt tired at the moment. However that changed after some days and I could do some good training efforts”, Neumanova looked back.
“Now I am really happy to be with the team and start racing again. I will have to see how the body reacts to this weekend, but I am feeling good now. If all goes well I will head to Spain do to some races over there. Hopefully my condition will improve during the races and I can take some good results with the team”, Neumanova previewed on the race and upcoming weeks.
Besides Neumanova Liv Racing Xstra brings Alison Jackson, Marta Jaskulska and Quinty Ton to the start of the stage race in Luxembourg. The race starts with a prologue over 2,2 km in Cessange. The first stage in Steinfort is divided in two parts. First the riders will ride a lap of 41 km before entering a local lap op 20,1 km, which they will have to do four times. On the final day in Garnich the scenario is the same with a large lap of 59,3 km and five local laps of 10 km.
