Loana Lecomte has announced she will not be able to compete in the cross country World Championships this week after battling a stomach bug.
Lecomte was due to race in the team relay later today and the Under 23 race on Saturday. Lecomte has been racing in Elites all year with a special dispensation from the UCI but for World Championships was put back into her age category to defend her stripes. Thankfully the bug is nothing too serious and Lecomte will be back in Lenzerheide to defend her World Cup leader's jersey.
We hope Lecomte is over the bug soon and fighting fit for the next World Cup round.
