9 p.m.: Before going to bed and while waiting for the start of the race, a paper by this very dear Antoine Huot on the rivalry between Van Aert and Evenepoel.

Cycling Worlds: Will the rivalry between Van Aert and Evenepoel still ruin Belgium's chances?

9 p.m.: Yo cyclix!

It had been a long time since we had delivered a bike, we were starting to miss it.

And we are going to savor it, this road race of the World Road Cycling Championships, because the season is coming to an end and we will be very sad to have to wait until the end of the first quarter of 2023 to vibrate again.

In short, the race.

260 terminals, 13 ascents, including a first of 7.5 km at 5.7%.

The profile is clearly for punchers.

Said like that, we would be almost confident for Julian Alaphilippe, double reigning world champion, but the Frenchman is in bad luck this year and is not really in top form.

But we also know he is capable of sublimating himself on D-Day, so maybe?

Opposite, the competition will be stronger than ever: Belgium shows up with its two leaders, favorites,

provided that their rivalry does not overturn everything.

Of course, let's not forget Tadej Pogacar, who no doubt wants to redeem himself after the loss of the Tour de France. >> See you at sunrise for the start of the live
