Thomas De Gendt and Tim Wellens have been forced to delay 'The Breakaway 2', their post-season adventure ride, after a number of unfortunate incidents befell the Lotto-Soudal pair.

De Gendt became sick after returning from the Shanghai Criterium and Wellens' bike was damaged in transit. The region of Spain they planned to ride through, the Serrania de Cuenca nature park between Madrid and Valencia, has also experienced early snowfall, blighting their planned route.
