On Sunday September 27, 2015 road race elite men on the programme for the World Cup. This World Cup will be held in and around the city of Richmond. The rider is among the main contenders to win the Rainbow jersey? What is the road road race elite men look like? What time road race and the time of trades expected?
The track of the WORLD CUP in 2015 is a lap of 16.2 kilometers. Participants should take this route 16 times, so that a total of 259.2 kilometres to ride. The course includes several short slopes. In theory it seems to be a very tough CHAMPIONSHIP course. The interesting thing is that the last mile rises slightly. Another interesting detail about this course is that it “cobble stones” to find, even if this results in relatively “clean” cobblestones and strips where these stones are certainly not as heavy as the famed cobblestones such as Paris-Roubaix and Flanders.
The start of this World Cup is in the morning at 9 am local time. There are currently 15:00 noon in the Netherlands and Belgium. The finish is expected around 03:45 local time, tv viewers in the lowlands around quarter to ten nights.
The Norwegian Alexander Kristoff was 2015, one of the great stars of the spring. Especially his performance in the Flemish races was impressive, culminating with victory in the Tour of Flanders. He also won the three days of De Panne three out of the four stages and the overall classification. He also triumphed in the Scheldt Prize. After this lovely spring was high expectations on the Tour de France, but it fell against its performance.
Then he regained after the Tour once again be his top form as he proved with more stages in stage races, but also with victory in World Tour race GP Ouest-France. Kristoff need in this form really counted among the favourites for the victory in Richmond, particularly as the trail, he seems to be very good.
Greipel and Degenkolb
Germany goes on the road race at the World Championships 2015 starts with the two leaders can really count on paper until the contenders for the world title, on a relatively flat course, similar to Richmond: André Greipel and John Degenkolb.
Greipel was really the Sprint King of Tour 2015, with four stage wins and was one time, Emperor Degenkolb of 2015, with victories in the Milan-San Remo and Paris-Roubaix. But it’s what questions to ask when these two leaders: how André Greipel, a bib road race at World Championships when? Greipel is still a sprint King when you are on the track at the Richmond race early stiffening by the other teams?And the extent to which John Degenkolb can rediscover his top form in the spring? His performance in both the Tour and the Vuelta, after all, was not very impressive.
When it comes to appearance, Peter Sagan is one of the biggest stars in the cycling world. He also has a nice Awards list, with the last four wins in the points classification of the Tour de France, winning eight stages in Grand Tours and victories in various semi-classic. Still missing from his trophy to win a big one-day race, which a top classics in the World Cup. The Slovak fairy tale will be very keen for it to fill in on his list this gap in Richmond.
Boonen, Gilbert and Van Avermaet
The Belgian team will start in Richmond with the three leaders: Tom Boonen, Philippe Gilbert and Greg Van Avermaet. Boonen and Gilbert both have already won the world title. On the trail in Richmond, they, like Van Avermaet, again will be counted among the contenders. One of the big questions, however, is the extent to which these three Belgian stars to cooperate during the football World Cup?
On paper the road road race not to be perfect for the Spaniard Alejandro Valverde, as this hits typically tougher courses, with more climbing. But he must in Richmond safely counted among the leading contenders for medals, partly because he has a good sprint and he has already shown he can strongly peaks towards the World Cup.
Valverde won four bronze medals at World Championships and two silver medals. The only world championship medal is still missing on his list is gold. He will therefore be very eager to finally stand on the top spot on the podium.
Michael Matthews and Simon Gerrans
Australia yesterday in Richmond starts with two leaders: Michael Matthews and Simon Gerrans. These are both riders who have a sharp sprint, but also good hilly courses survive. Matthews is the fastest sprinter of this pair and Gerrans is usually the one with the most content of this duo. The two must surely be counted among the contenders for medals.
Champion Polish world Kwiatkowski should definitely not be seen as a chance to get a medal again in 2015 or even to extend his world. The Czech Zdenek Fredrik is among the contenders for medals. When the WORLD CUP ends in the Sprint by a big group, you also need the French sprint Demare and Bouhanni are counted among the contenders for medals. The Italian team doesn’t seem to have immediately a toprenner, for which the trail in Richmond is perfect, but still have Italian best riders like Nibali and Ulissi, especially when the quote is difficult, not hopeless should be considered in the fight for the top places.
Netherlands is a strong team started in Richmond, but none of the Netherlands is one of the top favorites for the title, especially as this relatively flat Trail is a good chance that the fight to end the Rainbow Jersey in a sprint and there is no global sits top sprinter in the Dutch elections. Niki Terpstra was appointed as the leader of the Dutch. He’s obviously a big striker and could play that way in the fight for the medals. Even Tom Dumoulin will given his top form in the Vuelta, probably get a free role in the Dutch team.
