Representing a generation of rising Danish talents along with Michael Valgren or Magnus Cort, Christopher Juul-Jensen will line-up at the start of the World Championship road race on Sunday as a part of a six-man roster completely made of Tinkoff-Saxo riders. Enjoying a free role in his debut, the 25-year cyclist admitted that even though they are not regarded favorites to take the spoils in the event, as a very cohesive unit they may have a chance to mix it up in the finale.

 

Ahead of his debut in the men’s elite road race, Juul admitted that he is honoured to represent his county as his only experience with World Championships was so far participating in the U23 event.

 

"It's a huge honour to represent my country," he said, according to Cyclingnews. "When I participated on the U23 team, I watched the pros, and suddenly I'm one of them. It's great to get selected and I think it shows that I've had a solid and pretty consistent season.

 

"Now I hope to get some productive days of training to polish the shape ahead of Sunday. Steven de Jongh is managing my training, and I feel that we've planned my preparations well."

 

The 25-year old Dane knowingly stated that the due to route characteristics, unpredictable Sunday’s affair could develop into several different scenarios. He also pointed out that even though the Danish team is not regarded one of the favorites to excel on parcours around Ponferrada, their close bonds thanks to riding for the same team might cause a big difference in the finale.

 

"We're all from the same team racing and training together all the time," said of the team. "So we know each other well and we know how to ride together. It's a difficult circuit but the race can develop in many different directions so that's why it's important to react to the race situation as a team."

 

"It can turn into a race for the likes of [John] Degenkolb and [Simon] Gerrans or a race for punchy climbers such as [Alejandro] Valverde or [Joaquim] Rodriguez," he explained. "It all depends on when the favourites make a move and how high the pace will be.

 

"But we might get a chance to open up the race with attacks in the final part. Otherwise we'll hang on as long as possible and see what happens," he said.

 

"In a 255km race it's simply a matter of being in top shape. I will have a free role on Sunday, but we will adjust our strategy during the race if one of us has a super day."
