Ghyselinck is realistic

Jan Ghyselinck hopes for a top 20 finish in today's time trial of the U23 category in the World Championships in Italy. The only Belgian in the race is not expected to repeat a win by his compatriot Dominique Cornu, who win the race in 2006.

Ghyselinck was cautious with a too optimistic prediction. "I am only in the U23 category for the second year," he told Belgian paper La Dernière Heure. His coach Jean-Pierre Dubois was happy with his rider's statement. "It's that Jan stays level-headed."

Without major favourites as in the past years (with Lars Boom or Mikhail Ignatiev), the race is wide open.
