Reigning world and olympic champion Fabian Cancellara (Team CSC Saxo Bank) might not start in the upcoming World Championships in Varese, Italy.

"Physically it's no problem but I am not sure if I have the will and the motivation to start. And if I'm not completely motivated, I don't want to start," Cancellara told the Swiss newspaper SonntagsBlick.

"During the Olympics I was in seventh heaven but it did not last long," said Cancellara, who feels he may need a break after such a busy season. "I'm just a human being, not a machine," he said.
