Moerenhout takes Dekker's World's spot

Dutchman Koos Moerenhout will take Erik Dekker's spot in the Dutch team for the World Road Championship on September 25, reports ANP. Dekker, who was coming back from a broken collarbone, had to forfeit the Tour of Poland due to illness and his fitness will not be good enough for the World's. The men's team now has eight of the nine riders finalised: Moerenhout, Michael Boogerd, Pieter Weening, Bram Tankink, Joost Posthuma, Max van Heeswijk, Leon van Bon and Thomas Dekker. The ninth spot will be between Karsten Kroon, Stefan van Dijk and Servais Knaven.
