Lasse Norman Hansen: I fear Viviani and Gaviria more than Cavendish in the Omnium

The current Olympic champion will face tough opposition from current world Omnium champion Fernando Gaviria of Colombia and Italy’s Elia Viviani. The Omnium starts on Friday morning with the men’s scratch race with the final of the six events on Saturday.
