The cyclist declared that his punishment carried out by the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) was quite severe and continues, making it difficult to process the event that occurred years ago. “I was given an unfair trial, but the future can only get brighter. Over the last few weeks I’ve felt more and more like a pilot again,” he said.

According to reports released at the time, the substance was found in an examination carried out before the UCI Cyclo-cross World Championships, last year, in Fayetteville, in the United States, in which it secured sixth place in the competition. However, the cyclist stated that he had a positive result due to contamination of a food supplement.

The decision was sent to the Court of Arbitration for Sport, which prevented him from participating in any competition for two years. However, close to returning to racing, Toon Aerts has plans and objectives to participate in races in Sint Niklaas, Brussels and Oostmalle.

“It’s especially important to be there again, but I’m training to be in my best shape for these three races. I’m going to start at the back of the field anyway, but I want to show myself. I want to show in Sint-Niklaas, Brussels and Oostmale who Toon Aerts is”, explained the athlete, stating that the matches will be important to find a new team next year.
