Norway’s Tobias Voss created a sensation as he turned the world time trial champion after dominating the entire contenders on Sunday on the Street Biking World Championships in Wollongong.
The 25-year-old Jumbo-Visma rider was forward of Swiss Stefan Küng and Belgium’s Remco Evenepoel, latest Vuelta race winner. The Italian Filippo Gana, the double title holder, misplaced seventh place.
France’s Bruno Armerel and Remy Cavagna completed tenth and eleventh, respectively, on a 34.2 km technical observe within the coastal resort city centre.
“I am dwelling a dream”
commented Tobias Voss, who slapped himself on the cheek to attempt to understand what was occurring to him.
Winner of the Tour de l’Avenir in 2019, succeeding Tadej Pogacar on the record of winners, there was little discuss of the smart younger Norwegian since, save for ninth place within the Giro in 2021. However he did on Sunday. The “excellent race” to go away everybody behind.
Whether or not it is Stefan Kung, the frontrunner in the course of the two intermediate intervals and who has lengthy believed in successful his first Gold Medal at Street Worlds. Or my two favorites, Remco Evenepoel and Filippo Ganna. The Belgian, who had come for the gold medal, was clearly upset and the Italian, who was chasing a hat-trick, was only a shadow of himself.
