The Cycling World Championships in Wollongong (Australia) is fast approaching and the first choices are starting to appear. On this page we track who will start in the time trial (September 18) and the road race (September 25).
Wout van Aert
Nathan Van Hoydonk
“Alberto Petitol is one step ahead of the rest,” says Benati, who has to disappoint the other two riders. “After him will follow David Ballerini and Mathieu Trentin, who will test at the Tour de Luxembourg.”
“We’re aiming for a good result, but we have to be realistic: Foat van Aert, Remko Evenpoel, Tadej Pojákár, Matthew van der Poel and Michael Matthews stand out.”
The Spanish national coach had to catch a minimum of 5 riders in ProTeams. Movistar and Cofidis will not abandon riders like Alejandro Valverde, Alex Aranburu, Carlos Verona, Ivan Garcia Cortina, the Izagirre brothers and the Herrada brothers. They want to use these riders for the downhill battle at the WorldTour.
Julian Alaphilippe was a question mark, as the double world champion dislocated his shoulder in a fall at the Vuelta ale. Soon after his retirement, he was able to resume training. The course in Australia also seemed like a thing for him. As the world champion, he can always participate, he is an additional rider for France. Striking: David Godot, fourth of the Tour, and Benoit Cosnefroy, winner of the Quebec GP, did not want to join.
Smaller countries ride the road
Twice Tour winner Tadej Pojacar is the only leader in the selection of Slovenia for the World Cup. Primus Roglic is still very upset with injuries after his crash in the Vuelta. Luka Mezjek and Matej Muhoric are also sick. Slovenia will go to Australia with 6 riders instead of 8.
