Aberasturi looking for gold

Orbea rider Jon Aberasturi will line up as one of the dark horses for the win in today's under-23 World Champs road race in Copenhagen. The 22-year-old speedster will take the start as one of five Spaniards and knows his burst of speed might come in handy if the race comes down to the anticipated bunch kick. "Being here at the Worlds is something I've dreamed of all year, and the truth is I'm feeling pretty good at the moment", he told DEIA. Having taken an impressive sprint win at the GP Portugal earlier this year, Aberasturi will be a marked man going into the final. He'll count on the support of Jesús Ezquerra, Jordi Símon, Roman Osuna and Víctor Martín. Especially Símon has been strong lately, so it's by no means a foregone conclusion that that the Orbea youngster will be their main man. Nonetheless, he's aiming to "show himself" if the race does conclude with a sprint. The parcours totals 170 kilometres and is not particularly lumpy, so look out for a top performance from the Basque.
