Cancellara to focus on World's time trial

In his preparation for the World's time trial this weekend, Fabian Cancellara will not begin stage 16 of the Vuelta a España. After placing a close second to David Millar in last Saturday's time trial, Cancellara is confident in being successful at Salzburg. "It is better for me in the run-up to the world championships to get some training in on my time trial bike," he said.

Cancellara explained that it was difficult decision to make. "First of all there is a great atmosphere among the CSC team at the Vuelta, and secondly I really wanted to help Carlos [Sastre] as much as I possibly could for the remainder of the race. The problem is though that there is now so many mountains and I wouldn't be able to help much anyway."
