World Cycling Championships 2021 Flanders: Favourites ITT – men

Wout van Aert - World Cycling Championships 2021 Flanders: Favourites ITT – menimage: Cor VosThe ITT at the Worlds in Flanders is expected to be en exciting race with top contenders on the same outstanding level. Van Aert, Ganna and Küng are the big guns, although the likes of Evenepoel and Bissegger can be up there also.

Form of the day, that’s the mosy likely factor deciding on gold, silver, bronze, or nothing. The fast course between Knokke-Heist and Bruges is very well-suited to title defender Filippo Ganna. He won both ITT stages in the Giro this year, yet Wout van Aert bested him on the pan-flat San Benedetto del Tronto course of the Tirreno-Adriatico. In fact, Stefan Küng was also faster that day. And recently the Suisse rider outgunned Ganna on the flat ITT course of the European Championships in Trento.

The roaring home crowds could be the decisive factor. Yes, we think Van Aert will use the home advantage to his favour and storm to the rainbow jersey.
