Van der Breggen expresses disappointment at loss of trade team event
The 2018 UCI Road World Championships have kicked off in Innsbruck, Austria, in the mountainous Tirol region of the Alps, with the elite women’s and men’s trade team time trails on Sunday.
In this edition of the Cyclingnews podcast, brought to you in association with Prendas Ciclismo, Pinarello and Floyds of Leadville,
Kirsten Frattini and Stephen Farrand discuss winning teams Quick-Step Floors and Canyon-SRAM. It was the final edition of the trade team, event after a six-year run, before the UCI take steps toward a national team version of the discipline at next year’s World Championships in Yorkshire.
We hear from Quick-Step Floors’ Bob Jungels, BMC Racing’s Rohan Dennis and Boels-Dolmans’ Anna van der Breggen on the official end of the trade team time trial.
The event now moves into the national team events; individual time trials and road races for the junior, under-23 and elite men and women, for what will be seven more days of racing.
The World Championships is never strictly about the bike races and so while in Innsbruck the UCI will be announcing the new WorldTour reforms, while at the same time the CPA is set to host an election that will decide its new president.
