Lotte Kopecky full of confidence at the Track Cycling World Championships: “I’m not satisfied with anything less than gold” | Cycling World Championship

Lottie Kopecky hails from a pink cloud in Glasgow. Against all expectations, she finished second in the Tour de France last week and is now gunning for medals on the downhill.

Kopecky himself doesn’t think the World Cup will come early: “I’ve already exhausted the tour, and I don’t feel any fatigue in my legs. On the contrary. I feel good. I haven’t done much this week.”

“I’m not going to improve this week, everything is fine conditionally. So I hope I start very well at first. The motivation is already there to surprise myself again. I’m really enjoying it.”

Kopecky’s program begins with an elimination race on Sunday. She won this song last year so expectations are high.

“A leak is immediately a risky number, and a lot can go wrong there,” she qualifies herself. “I’m aware of that and I’m not going to do anything crazy.”

He added, “Tuesday is the points race, which is my favorite part of the track. I start with gold as my ambition, and I will not settle for less than that. Therefore, we are heading towards an ambitious World Cup.”

Finally, there is aluminium. Discipline is very important when it comes to the Olympic Games. “In the omnium I start with a different ambition, the medal is great there,” he sounds more cautious.

In conclusion, it also responds to doubts about possible overtaking in the current World Cup. Doesn’t a World Cup on the track hurt her chances of success on the road?

“I don’t think this is a negative. If track cycling didn’t exist, I would have a few days of rest after the Tour with some intense stimuli afterwards. These stimuli have now simply been replaced by competitions on the track.”
