On her social media Germany's Janne Friederike Meyer-Zimmerman has shared her luck with others. Together with husband, Christophe Zimmerman, the German female rider is expecting her first child.
"Some people asked me why I wasn't competing in Aachen," she writes on her Instagram. "Both Chesmu and Messi can still use some time-off, but mainly as I'm expecting my first child I leave the boots aside for a while. Hopefully I'll be back in the saddle by Aachen next year..."
