36 year-old Dutch sprinter Jans Koerts will leave the Cofidis team at the end of this season, reports ANP. Koerts said he was disillusioned with the news, as he was under the impression that there would be no problems for him to stay with the French team. But now, he believes he will have difficulty finding a new team. He suffered a serious crash in the Volta a Portugal, and is still unable to train on the road. He will not be able to race again this season. "Before my crash I showed how hard I can work for a team. I hope the team leaders also saw that. Otherwise, the end of my career is getting very close."
