Yeah, and Degenkolb and Bouhanni were described as the top names of the race this year. The Frenchman has abandoned, and the German doesn't impress at all... :Neutral:

Oh, the Top 10 have already been announced? Great, so I guess I won't have to watch in the first place :p

To the danes in here: Why is the Vejle area so hilly when the rest of Denmark is basically flat?

It's the same thing here in the Nederlands. The Limburg region is very hilly but the rest of the country is very flat.

Not that flat..... it's pretty "hilly"..... though obviously the flattest place in Scandinavia ;)

Who is Denmark captain in the Worlds when Matti is not at his best? Valgren?


Team is:

Valgren, Astana
Cort, Orica
Pedersen, Trek
Kragh Andersen, Sunweb
Juul-Jensen, Orica
Moerkoev, Katusha

The first 5 are all young, up and coming talent, who are yet to reach the peak of their career (Valgren is getting there, and will be riding his first season as a classics co-captain next year), and Moerkoev pretty much a road captain, who will only sprint for the win, if he ends up in a small group at the end (he is still fast, but not top 10 fast in a bunch sprint with all the best).

Valgren and Cort have been appointed captains, but I think both Kragh Andersen and Pedersen (especially) will be saved, far into the race, as backups if the captains don't have the legs..... While Juul-Jensen and Moerkoev do the grunt work for the first 3/4 of the race.

If Norway shows us real viking weather, the team will have a serious shot.... if it's all calm winds and sun, they will have to get a little lucky ;)

The last ice age did that. But we have many climbs in the most part of Jutland which isn't completely flat. Though with a maximal altitude of 175m, it practically is.

To be fair, they are the top names. They just aren't the best riders at the moment.

Just doing what is expected of him. He's a world class time trialist on courses like this and surely the best in this field. With the rain coming in, it looks like he's going to take the win today.
