Jonas Vingegaard will not participate at the World Championships in Glasgow regardless of how he fares at the Tour de France. Danish national team Anders Lund has revealed that the defending Tour champion has not made himself available for selection for the Worlds, which this year takes place in an earlier August date.

“Vingegaard has said that the Worlds weren’t possible for him due to his race programme after the Tour,” Lund told TV2. “I can understand that Jonas is focusing clearly on the Tour de France at this moment and that that’s what counts for him.”
