Nolf's funeral planned for Saturday

Frederiek Nolf's funeral is tentatively planned for Saturday at 10:00 in his hometown of Kuurne, Belgium. The plans are still tentative because his body has not yet arrived home.

Nolf died in his sleep during the Tour of Qatar. He was to have been returned to Belgium on Monday night via a flight to London, but the plan has been delayed.

The current plans for Saturday would allow mourners to pass before his coffin at the community house before services at the Michielskerk. It is expected that his Team Topsport-Vlaanderen teammates will serve as pallbearers, carrying the coffin to the graveyard.
