Castroviejo aiming for top result at Worlds

Going into his very first World Championship, crono specialist Jonathan Castroviejo is understandably excited. But he's not in Copenhagen just to make up the numbers, as he told the Spanish Cycling Federation's own website. "I don't want to set any specific goals, but if I was to finish among the twelve best I'd be really pleased. A top-six result would be amazing. But mainly I just want to pay the coach back for the confidence he's shown in me", he said. Speaking of his preparation, the soon-to-be Movistar rider was worried a month-long absence from competition might hamper him. "I haven't competed for over a month so I don't know exactly where I'm at. But I've been feeling really good in training, so I'm eager to get going. I've been putting in a lot of high-intensity hours behind a scooter, so I should be fine. Overall it's a big challenge for me, but I'm also aiming to do well and gain some experience at this level. Being at the World Champs is a dream for any young boy so naturally I feel privileged. Who'll take the win? Like everyone else, I'll say it's between Tony Martin and Fabian Cancellara."
