G ain't riding, as per as interview on the BBC Wales site. Doesn't sound keen on the RR either. Shame, cos on top form, a medal would beckon in the TT.

Any links to that interview? Why would he pass this one in a lifetime opportunity , sounds strange .. Lack of info i presume.

I spent 4 days in Bergen back in 2013. Lovey city....except it Rained Every Day and Every Night :).

Can we expect rain for the Worlds?

That would be great. He finished dead last in the Vuelta ITT only to bounce back and pick up a podium at the WC!

There is a limit to how much you can lose/win in a 3.5 km hill finish .. Ill say 90 seconds among the favs :D

Some riders gonna switch bikes for the final hill?

Everyone is gonna change bike before the first turn in that hill, u cant go up with a TT bike.. Simple.
Well of course you can, but it's not ideal. TT bikes are usually quite a bit heavier than the bikes they use for climbing. That makes you slower in the first place. In the second place the TT bikes do not have the optimal gearings for climbing.
