In the time trial, the Australian’s Dennis repeated as world champion for his first race since abandoning the Tour de France, the day before the Grand Tour, the time trials, without explanation. Later, he cited a case with his team, Bahrain-Merida, which has affected his home life.
“It was probably the hardest of the eight to 10 weeks of my life,” says Dennis of the time between the end of the Tour on July 18, and up to Seven. 25 the clock at the world championships in Great Britain. “There was a lot of mental kind of battles within my own head each day to think, of course, the Tour de France starting and everything.”
Dennis said he has bounced between the formation of a mile-high in Andorra and at sea level in the province of Girona, Spain.
“To keep things a bit fresh, because I’ve been fired from all of my races,” said Dennis, whose psychologist lived with him during this time. “I knew that if I stayed in a place, he would play mind games with me all the time.”
Now, Dennis calls it the best moment of a career which included a time trial wins in all three Grand Tours, holding the record of the time for two months in 2015, and the 2012 Olympic games team pursuit silver medal and a pair of world championship titles in this discipline on the track.
That the rider will not be Dennis, which is focused on the world championships time-trial in Switzerland that falls on the same day as the last day of the Visit (Sept. 20). Dennis is “90 to 95 percent sure” he will not start the Tour de France this year. Next year’s Tour de France races in the beginning of the Olympic games of Tokyo, to Dennis admits he could miss this Grand Tour, too.
“[A Tour de France] is something that I want to do with the team,” said Dennis, who hopes to become the first Australian to win an Olympic cycling road title. “It is not a given that you’re in the team if you raise your hand on this team. This is probably the team the more difficult to obtain.”
