What's Cool In Road Cycling

Chris Anker Sørensen predicts bunch sprint in Ponferrada

Having just completed the Vuelta a España as a supporting rider for Alberto Contador, Chris Anker Sørensen has enjoyed a few weeks of recovery and is now back on track to participate in the road race World Championships on Sunday.

“I’m really looking forward to the World Championships, It’s always an honor to be wearing the red and white jersey. I feel well-recovered after the Vuelta and am physically in good form, says Sørensen.

The World Championship circuit in Ponferrada, Spain is not the most demanding and mountainous but Sørensen has a good feeling about it nevertheless and he predicts a rather open finale:

“The course doesn’t seem as hard as other years and reminds me of the course from the World Championships in Australia a few years back where I did pretty well. I reckon a group of about 40 riders will be fighting it out on the finish line and Matti (Breschel) will be our guy for the sprint”, concludes 30-year-old Chris Anker Sørensen.

The World Championship course covers 254.8 kilometers on a circuit in and around the city of Ponferrada. The other Danish riders are all Tinkoff-Saxo: Matti Breschel, Michael Valgren, Chris Juul-Jensen, Nicki Sørensen and Michael Mørkøv.
