The UCI world championships in Copenhagen happen right now. STEVENS-pilot Marianne Vos will start in two disciplines. Before she went to Kopenhagen, she gave us this interview.
Of course I’m still exited, cause World Championships are special. The whole year you are busy with the preparations for this moment and when you win the rainbow jersey it gives you an amazing feeling knowing that you are the best rider in the world.
It can be a race with lots of surprises. I already know who I should watch this Saturday. Judith Arndt is very good. I can’t figure Ina-Yoko Teutenberg out. Emma Johansson is the whole season already strong and also Giorgia Bronzini is really good.
This season my form is better than last years. I have trained more and more specific. There were fortunately less races and my recovery has improved, through which I could quickly start with my trainings again. And all those training years behind me, give me a better foundation.
Last week we had a great training camp with the Dutch selection at Papendal. The atmosphere in the group is good and I'm sure that no one goes to the World Championships with a hidden agenda.
The atmosphere is great.
After Copenhagen I go to Bhutan to visite the Bhutan and partners sports programme and I will attend the Royal Wedding celebrations of the king of Bhutan. After this I hope to go on holiday. In November/December I will start my cyclocross-season.
This is only for next season. The road races and the track races for the Olympic Games were to difficult to combine. But next year I will still train on the track and after the Olympic Games you will probably see me back on track.
