Van der Poel has been preparing for the Globe Championships in a series of schooling camps as he will get prepared to lead the Dutch men’s squad in Wollongong – the place he flies to just after the Primus Classic.
Seeking ahead, he claimed, “I are unable to control the opposition and the system at the World Cup, but I do. And I’m ready for it.”

They have been competing in Canada, and van der Poel’s been questioned if he has finished any homework by looking at them in motion.
“No, I did see the final results go. But it truly is not like I sat down in front of my TV”, he said.
“I also observed the dash amongst Pogacar and Van Aert in the Grand Prix of Montreal on Twitter. I noticed a incredibly robust Pogacar, who began sprinting from considerably. But I suspect it was a extremely challenging race.”
Owning in no way been entire world winner on the road with the elite, van der Poel insists he is concentrating on himself, declaring, “In any situation, it is a purpose to conquer that rainbow jersey a person day.”
“That will not be quick. The Planet Cup is constantly a very hard and distinctive race to win”, he explained.
He will also form portion of the mixed relay staff in Australia, and he admits he required convincing, indicating, “It was Annemiek van Vleuten (his Dutch group mate) who talked it into my head. She believes that we have a good probability of winning the planet title if the men’s team is powerful sufficient. That is why I used for the Mixed Relay.”
