Evenepoel and Van Aert, in the World Cup time trial this Friday without forgetting Pogacar

the Belgian Remco Evenepoel He gave away his world champion rainbow jersey on Sunday in the online race. It is the day of the Dutch Mathieu Van der Poel, who gave a recital on the streets of Glasgow to become the new king of the road. Remco was twenty-fifth, slowing down the effort once he found himself out of the final cut, of the fight for medals.

Now he will try to recover this setback in the individual time trial in Stirling, 47.8 kilometers in this Scottish town, which ends with a brutal 800 meters uphill on cobblestones. With a ten percent uneven finish line.

Remco, silver in the modality in 2019 and bronze in 2021 and 2022, will be looking for gold, as will his countryman wout van aertworld runner-up after Van der Poel, as he is already in the CRI of the 2020 and 2021 World Cups. He had to climb on top of the drawer.

Pogacar starts at 4:56 pm Next, with a one minute and 20 minute separation, Jay Vine, Filippo Ganna, Geraint Thomas, Evenepoel and Kung. Norwegian closes at 5:04 pm Tobias Foss, surprising winner of the previous World Cup.

Just a Spaniard against the clock Xabier Mikel Azparren (Euskaltel-Euskadi). This will be the 64th contestant to start. Fifth in the Spanish championship, he left on Sunday in his World Cup debut.

Gone are the times Miguel Indurain and Abraham Olano dominated. The sixth and final Spanish medal came from Jonathan Castroviejo, who took bronze in 2016,
