The road racing season may have already begun, with the first Women's WorldTour race, the Cadel Evans Great Ocean Road Race, in Australia, over and done with, but the main goals of the 2020 calendar – races like the spring Classics and the Giro Rosa – are still several months away.

For a selection of multi-disciplinarians, however, the first major objective of the season is almost upon them. The UCI Track World Championships, being held in Berlin, Germany, are just a week away, and for Amalie Dideriksen of Boels Dolmans, the world road race champion in 2016, it's a major step towards her main goal of 2020 – the Tokyo Olympics.
