EF Pro Cycling climber Michael Woods' victory on stage 3 of Tirreno-Adriatico on Wednesday indicated that the Canadian is on an upwards trajectory for the rapidly approaching World Championships in Imola, Italy, at the end of this month, and for his longer-term future at Israel Start-Up Nation in 2021 and beyond.

Woods fractured his femur on the last day of racing at Paris-Nice in March, but has used the enforced break from racing due to the coronavirus pandemic to fight back to fitness, and returned to competition at Strade Bianche at the start of August.
