Team Sky have arrived in Bergen, Norway, ahead of the Sunday’s World Team Time Trial Championship and Sport Director Brett Lancaster is confident of their chances of winning gold.
The team will be looking to improve on a previous best finish of 3rd in the 2013 edition in Florence.
He said: “When it comes to selection, it’s definitely a case of horses for courses.
"We’ve been out and had a look at it and this is a route which suits our guys. It’s probably the most amount of climbing there has been in a Worlds TTT since it was reintroduced in 2012, and we’ve been able to put together a group for this course which means that we’re in with a good shot."
That might mean using people early on and not necessarily expecting them to be part of the group that makes the finish line together. That will be part of the thinking each team has to do”.
In a perfectly drilled TTT there are no heroes. It’s all about how your effort contributes to the overall result and how it affects the other members of your team.”
