Cool live interview with Emma Norsgaard today, at Danish Tv2 in their pre-show for TdS.

She said her next target is nationals, where she hopes to retain the jersey, and said the route suits her.

She also said she is looking towards Worlds, where she believes she can take a medal on the course.

Out of curiosity, I had a look at her results this year, they are (latest first):

Yeah, solely in terms of consistency and without regarding the difficulty of the parcours, she's probably been the strongest this year, but of course you won't expect the two vans to finish in the top 10 in every bunch sprint. It should also be noted that Movistar have worked quite hard for her, whereas other teams have had more riders to depend on in some of the races, but she obviously still had to finish it off.

If she can keep this level throughtout the season, she'll be a great card to have for the World Championships. We obviously don't know how the women's Paris-Roubaix will play out when it finally gets to take place, but she might also be in with a chance there, if it isn't hard enough for van Vleuten.
