Vingegaard opted out of the Olympics to spend time with his family. He still has until the 13th of September to impress Lund.
But unless he has a deal with Lund, he obviously has to step up his game.

I wouldn't think opting out of the Olympics as the obviously best candidate would necessarily make him more likely for future selections...
I don't know how the relationship between Vingegaard and Lund currently is, or how much Lund tried to convince him to go to Tokyo, but it could of course affect at least this year's WC selection, when Lund has a pretty good pool of riders to choose from.

He doesn't appear to be someone who's generally difficult to work with, unlike how the other Rasmussen used to be at times, so I don't expect him to be left out when the routes suits him, unless too many other Danish climbers and/or puncheurs suddenly get their breakthroughs.
