The 2017 and 2018 European time trial champion, Victor Campenaerts, believes that he has what it takes to make it onto the podium at the World Championships elite men's time trial in Imola, Italy, on Friday. The Belgian also thinks that compatriot Wout van Aert will be one of his biggest rivals for the title, and says that he's not ruling out the possibility of two Belgians finishing on the podium.

Along with Van Aert, Campenaerts named defending champion Rohan Dennis (Australia), Italy's Filippo Ganna and Switzerland's Stefan Küng among the favourites, as well as 2017 world champion Tom Dumoulin, "although the course may be too fast for him", the 28-year-old said.
