Goddaert still coping with Nolf's death

Kristof Goddaert was the roommate of Frederiek Nolf during the Tour of Qatar, and for the first time has spoken about the death of his 21-year-old teammate. " I will never forget it," he said, and continues to ask himself if there is something he could have done.

"What happened that night? Could I have done something?", he said on sporza.be. "These questions remain with me, but I have not yet found any answers."

"I will never forget Frederiek, and there will always be a small dead place within me," the 22-year-old noted. "His death will never disappear from my head. It is a scar. The wound heals, but the scar remains."(SW)
