Bradley McGee, Australian coach and national selector, is hoping his nation can achieve gold in the time trial with Rohan Dennis and repeat the feat in the road race with Michael Matthews.

 

"Rohan Dennis is riding a wave of momentum this year, and it is our aim, as the national team, to fully support him in the best way possible," McGee told Cyclingnews.

 

Cyclingnews also caught up with Dennis, who has had a great 2015 and won the first Maillot Jaune of the Tour de France courtesy of taking the time trial.

 

“It's a big bonus already being in America for a month before the race. It means no problems with jet lag or a different climate. I usually don't have a problem with these things but eliminating that possibility eliminates the chance of it actually being an issue,” he said of his build up, when he took two stages and the GC in the USA Pro Challenge.

 

"My preparation for worlds has been a little different to other years. I've had a big altitude training block and only a seven-day tour in there. We are trying to find what the best prep is for myself leading into a big TT."

 

McGee says the road race course is actually much harder than it looks and that as the race will be a war of attrition, all nine of his riders will need to go well in order to see the nation take their first rainbow jersey on the road since Cadel Evans won in 2009.

 

“The road race course will be deceptive in difficulty in comparison to how the profile reads and will, once again, be somewhat a race of attrition as the kilometres slide past 220,” McGee said. “We are in a very fortunate era to not only have experienced and battle-ready athletes, but to have these athletes willing and eager to ride for their country.”

 

"Each of our nine riders in the road race will have essential roles, and it will be how well they can combine that will decide our overall success. I look forward to our fresh faces in McCarthy and Docker absorbing as much learning as possible from their elders in anticipation for future campaign successes.”
