Vink out for the worlds

Downhill rider Nico Vink (Dolphin) will not be riding at the world championships in Fort William, Scotland. The Belgian rider is not 100% recovered from a fracture of a bone in his back. Although it will be possible for Vink to ride again next week, his preparation for worlds is far from ideal.
