I really don't understand Wout. Mathieu has had to cope with an injury, the way I understand it, he wouldn't be ready anyway but surely Wout could've been there. Jet lag is not so hard to deal with. Just one or two days for recovery is enough and then there's still three weeks before Het Nieuwsblad and another three weeks before the Tour of Flanders. Surely, nothing alarming. Perhaps he wouldn't have been at the top of his form but does it matter so much? He's always claimed he liked cyclocross more than road cycling. I can't believe he would favour Omloop to Cyclocross Worlds. Usually those who win Omloop wouldn't win a major classic afterwards. It's very hard to keep the good shape for such a long period. So surely he could've raced Worlds and then race Omloop without expecting anything and then build up for the classics. I guess the sponsors/team thought otherwise.

Pidcock is now certainly top favourite but I see that Van der Haar is getting back at his former level, so I really hope for him. It's now or never. That might bring us SR back.  :lol
