From Thursday 28 to Sunday 31 August Ljubljana hosted the World Cycling Championships for amateurs.
Some personal conclusions from the championships:
Amateurs take their cycling much more serious than professionals.
You are never too old to:
– Ride the newest and most expensive bikes
– Ride fast
– Be fanatic
The level of racing was sometimes close to professional.
There are too many world champions cycling.
– Only one man can be the best cyclist in the world, but for adult men there are UCI rainbow jerseys in the categories (Under 23 years, Professionals, under 35 years, under 40, under 45, under 50, under 55, under 60, under 65, above 65.
And then we have para cycling world championships, military world championships, world championships police cycling, the world medical cycling championships, the world championships for firemen and last but not least, of course, the world cycling championships for journalists, where I will participate from 3 to 7 September in Austria. Will the real world champion please stand up?
