Mads Pedersen will not defend the World Cup jersey

The World Cup route in Italy does not suit Mads Pedersen, so he does not show up, says the national coach.

The Danish cycling star Mads Pedersen (Trek) will not defend his World Cup jersey later this month in Italy.

This is stated by national coach Anders Lund to TV2 Sport .

The reason is that the World Cup route in northern Italy is extremely mountainous, which means that Mads Pedersen still does not have a realistic chance of regaining the World Cup title.

It has been a difficult decision for Mads, but after I have been down to see the route, he has come to the conclusion that it does not make much sense in terms of sports, says Anders Lund to TV2 Sport.

The national coach selects his World Cup squad on 14 September. The actual line race at the World Cup will be run on 27 September.

Previously, Søren Kragh Andersen (Sunweb) also canceled the Danish World Cup team.

The bike calendar is extremely compact this fall due to the month-long corona shutdown of the season.

Around Flanders and Parix-Roubaix could be more obvious future goals for Mads Pedersen.
