The World Championships finally start tomorrow with the team time trial. Today we looked at the course – and I was positively surprised. Compliments to the organizers. There are a lot of curves, but you can ride them all at tempo if it stays dry. It is like a roller coaster. High speed, much left-right and up and down. Unfortunately that is not the profile for the individual time trial ;-)
Personally, I feel fit, came well out of the Tour of Britain and hope that I can hold my form for the whole week. For us as a team, it would be great to go for a medal. Even a fifth place would be good, because we are thinking in perspective. We are bringing more and more time trial quality into the team, with which we plan to finish at the top in the future. Norway is a first test for us and we will get some important experience. We start at 16:04.
