The 2020 cycling year may well be the best season in Anna van der Breggen’s career. After the resumption of the season, she won almost all the important appointments. “It’s quite an absurd season for me,” she says in front of the camera Cycling Flash.
World champion and Dutch champion on the road, World and European champion time trial, overall victory in the Giro Rosa and fourth in the Strade Bianche. “It has been a very good year so far in terms of results,” she says with a sense of understatement.
But Van der Breggen, in his own words, had to “switch the switch” when it became clear at the beginning of this year that its main goal, the Olympic Games in Tokyo, was being postponed to 2021 due to the consequences of the corona virus. “It was the main goal of this year. But the situation then was quite alarming with all the people who ended up in the hospital. At the time, I didn’t want to be involved in the Olympics either. ”
The brand new world champion held a press conference in Maastricht today, at which she announced that she would postpone her planned cycling pension until the end of 2021. In the Flèche Wallonne, she can win the Walloon semi-classic for the sixth time in a row on Wednesday.
