A focused Dumoulin looks unbeatable with this profile.
The only threat I could see for him would be a magical Froomey performance. Could happen, since apparently recovery is not a problem that concerns him anymore :razz:

However, Dumoulin vs Bodnar head to head in ITT, were 1 or both are in the top 10 is 11/14 for Dumoulin (79%). So a 1 out of 5 chance for Bodnar. Though he beat Dumoulin last year in the worlds ITT and in the ENECO tour. However the latter one was a short ITT and the Worlds Dumoulin was out of good shape. (peaked at giro, tour and olympics already)

Its almost impossible to imagine Froome carrying topform all the way to the wc itt, but its Froome so anything is possible.

This tt is perfect for Dennis as well as it's 30km, he usually doesnt like the very long ones.
He's also very strong at lumpy profiles.

Dumoulin is the obvious favourite, but hasnt shown good form at a WC itt so far. So its pretty open if you ask e.

Poland has 2 spots (Bialoblocki is in now also it seems), so if Kwiatkowski is not starting its because he will focus 100% on the Road Race besides the TTT. Too bad as he would have had a serious chance of a medal on this course, but ofcourse so will he in the Road Race.

Edvald BOasson Hagen will race the ITT and also focus 100 percent on the RR.. Some say a race 4 days before the RR is a good thing , some dont .. We will see..

But this is the first time since 2014, when he was 23, that he actually perfectly prepared for the worlds ITT specifically.

In 2015 he suddenly rode GC Vuelta. In 2016 he had already peaked 3 times. A 4th peak wasn't within reach

I have all my money on Froome, and if he dont win he will hear it cause im at the finish line as well! :D

My prediction is that he is 15 sec down on Dumolin , 25 on Kiryenka and 40 on BOdnar at the start of the hill.. At the top finish he wins by 34 seconds on Dumolin :D

The Moscon hype on this thread is so lame

Moscon ( God bless his oafish racist cotton socks) is going to beat Dumoulin, Dennis, Roglič, Froome, Kelderman, Bodnar, Kiry....yeah right ...he has beaten all before in a TT ?

behave ...

Would have been perfect for Berto. Or Bala in his 2017 alien shape.
TD is almost obliged to win this as he chose to take away from us an interesting Vuelta for his selfish glory goal in this ITT WC. If he fails, damn sure he won't come away with that easily...
