Olympic road race is gonna be way too hard for him.Slangeveld said:Philip Roodhooft (team manager) also mentioned that the Yorkshire parcours suits Mathieu in a post race interview this year when asked about the future.jaylew said:Interesting. I hadn't heard that, though I'd love to see him there. Do you have a link?Dekker_Tifosi said:MTB races has nothing to do with the worlds Jawlew
In fact, the national coach already talked with MvdP about Yorkshire. There's already a 90% chance he is going to participate.
If Van der Poel has also improved on the mountain bike he can beat Schurter and legtimately do a PFP and win three world titles in a single year.
It's a shame there is only one rest day between the road race and the MTB cross country in Tokyo next year but with this guy anything is possible.
