He thinks only of the title of world champion. Author of a very good season with his FDJ formation with four victories in four classics in the space of three weeks, including Liège-Bastogne-Liège Espoirs, Romain Grégoire is in Australia with a single ambition, the rainbow jersey of champion of the world. “For a 19-year-old, he is surprising both physically and mentally. He has been talking to me about this World Cup for a long time and when you know that he rarely misses the goals he sets for himself,
we can expect anything with him on Friday” launched coach Pierre-Yves Chatelon.

In the absence of the winner of the Tour de l’Avenir and one of the favorites, the Belgian Uijtdebroeks, the race will also rely on the Dutch formation with Olav Kooij and Casper Van Uden. Norway with Per Strand Hagenes and Germany’s Michel Hessmann are also seen as favourites.
