Re: World Championships 2017: Bergen, Norway!
« on: April 26, 2017, 22:58 »
*be cyclists Oliver Naesen, Yves Lampaert, Jolien D'Hoore and Ann-Sophie Duyck spotted in Bergen today, testing the course for the worlds with a few local riders from #fixit and an entourage of police guards and *be cycling boss Kevin De Weert. According to reports in the local media they tested both the road race and time trial loop courses + Naesen and Lampaert also did the Fløyen climb which will be the last part of the ITT.
Their evaluation is different from the dutch team's evaluation: The Belgians said that the road race loop was not as hard as expected and might be perfect for strong sprinters like *no Kristoff. On the other hand, the climb to Fløyen which will be used in the men's ITT was much harder than expected. Lampaert said it would favor strong climbers that can also hold a high speed on the flat section,  *uk Froome, *au Dennis and  *nl Dumoulin.
