Beautiful win and emotions involved made me leak water. Considering all the watt talks. It really takes much much more then that. To achieve what Moho did today.
 
why is he not going to the Worlds? Form seems to be there and I do not think it is such a bad course for him
No idea, but apparently he decided it like a month ago already.
there was an interview in Polish press on Saturday, and according to that, he made his decision just before the start of the race. Until then, he still had the choice to do San Sebastian and the Worlds or Poland and Eneco. He opted for the latter, as he didn't see a chance to finish much better than maybe Top 10 in Glasgow, and preferred to go for GC in the two stage races instead.

I came here to congratulate him on his Tour de Pologne win but only now realized he won't so the WCRR. What a pity. This is the kind of route where a strong rider capable of grabbing an opportunity (and with a strong teammate sucking wheels behind) could really win. What a missed opportunity.
Agree… Any explanations why he doesn’t race WCRR?

The course in Glasgow is tailormade for him. Great bikehandler with power, endurance and explosivity…

I can’t believe he won‘t race on Sunday… Why?…

He’s been really strong lately. I don’t buy that he doesn’t think it suits him as mentioned above. Also would be a great combo with Pogacar. There has to be a real reason.

No, that is definitely the reason.

He has an idea that you have to have a strong team to maintain position in the front all the race.

But I still don't get it, he is a smart guy, why does he not realise that this is not a logical conclusion?
