Robert abandons Tour de Pologne with fatigue

Robert pulled out of the Tour de Pologne on Tuesday morning just a few hours ahead of the start of stage 3. He rode to sixth place overall at the Tour de France in July and the exertion of that race, which finished just a week before the start in Poland, has taken its toll.

Gesink was a fairly late and surprising inclusion in LottoNL-Jumbo's plans for Poland and he will now rest up and prepare for the Grand Prix Cyclistes in Québec and Montréal, both of which he has won in the past.

"I'm exhausted after my hard-fought sixth place in the Tour de France," said the 29-year-old. "That's why I have to take some rest for a while, so I can prepare myself perfectly for the one-day races in Canada."
