The Grand 2022 Wollongong UCI Road World Championships Thread, September 18th-25th

Page 32 - Get up to date with the latest news, scores & standings from the Cycling News Community.
Posted yesterday that McKenzie would do a good ride in the ITT - Some forgot that the ITT was 28.8km while most junior ITT's have been been around 14 to 18kms - The extra distance makes a difference - In saying that, Tarling is very talented - Think Rogers will be the number one seed for Australia in the RR - McKenzie should be joining BEX in 2024.
 
yeah, getting caught cheating is always a bit disappointing.
Such an amateur. Well deserved to get your race ruined if you either don’t know the rules or you are trying to cheat.
A bit harsh maybe? These kids are 17-18 years old...

According to the Belgian Cycling Association, the bike went for maintenance after the European Championship, and then they accidentally put a 53 on, instead of a 52. No one noticed after numerous checks until 15min before the start.

I find it very amateurish as well. Not all blame on the rider as he is indeed a young kid, but all other people in his entourage are looking very foolish. The trip to Australia is a very costly one, and not having the basics right is too stupid for words (or on purpose...?).
 
Start times for tomorrow's TTT have been released as well now:

14:23 TAHITI
14:27 NEW CALEDONIA
14:31 SAMOA
14:35 UCI WORLD CYCLING CENTRE
15:00 UKRAINE
15:04 AUSTRALIA
15:08 AUSTRIA
15:12 SPAIN
15:37 POLAND
15:41 FRANCE
15:45 BELGIUM
15:49 DENMARK
16:14 SWITZERLAND
16:18 ITALY
16:22 NETHERLANDS
16:26 GERMANY

Could be rain affected, by the look of it.

Pajur doing so well does not bode well for the road race. For the rest of the peloton that is. If we'd go to the line with a group they're cooked. He has won all but one sprint he's contested this season and it would appear his form is great.
Is Romet a common name in Estonia? Romed is a typical name in a certain part of Tyrol because of St. Romed(ius) and for the same reason Romedio is also a name that you'll find in the Val di Non.

Around here it's a name that is mainly associated with 2 specific areas and usually only found there.

Estonia is a country that has always had a small amount of good pros in recent years, mainly Tanel and Taaramäe, but also guys like Räim and Laas.

Zoe Backstedt has a bigger engine than her sister Elynor - She can achieve better results if she has more racecraft and excellent recovery - The world is her oyster.

Meanwhile Michael Hutchinson on GCN said that Josh Tarling's younger brother has been beating his times at juvenile level.
Is there a third Hayter?
