Dutch coach says Copenhagen course is one for the sprinters

Van Vliet looks to Bos for the win

Dutch national coach Leo van Vliet has checked out the course of the world championships in Copenhagen, and decided the race will probably end in a mass sprint finish.

“If we come to the finish with 30 men, I think this will be a world championship totally for sprinters,” he told NuSport.nl.

The road course is “a little undulating, with a short climb just after the start of the lap, but that is nothing,” he said.  “A very different course than we are accustomed to in recent years.”

He will be looking to Theo Bos for the sprint on the Dutch team, and has already talked to the Rabobank rider about it.  “I'm wondering how Theo will develop in 2011.”
