Intestinal infection knocks Milram rider out
Peter Wrolich of Team Milram has abandoned the Tour de France on Friday as a result of an intestinal infection.
Wrolich completed stage 12 of the race, but will not start the 13th stage in Vittel on Friday.
“I have a stomach and intestinal infection,” he told Cyclingnews. “I simply can't do it any more. I just don't have any strength left. I am really sorry, but there is no other choice.”
It was the fifth Tour for the 35-year-old Austrian. He had been at the Tour de France to help set-up sprints for Gerald Ciolek.
