VINGEGAARD OPTS TO MISS ROAD CYCLING WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS

Tour de France champion Jonas Vingegaard is to skip September’s world road race championships in Australia, Danish national team selector Anders Lund said on Tuesday. Vingegaard will instead concentrate on activities with his team, Jumbo-Visma, Lund said.

“We spoke with him and his team and they decided it was better to rest him,” Lund explained.

“It is one thing to be ready physically, but you also need to be mentally ready.”

Magnus Cort Nielsen, Jakob Fuglsang and Soren Kragh Andersen will all feature in a strong Danish line-up in Australia for the event that starts September 18. Fuglsang is a former winner of the prestigious Liege-Bastogne Liege one-day race, while Cort Nielsen has won stages at the Tour de France and the Vuelta a Espana.
