We have learned Michael Valgren to know you as an extremely hardy rider, which can interfere with the very best, if the route is really.
But it is not the Valgren, who has tørnet out on the highways in this year.
the 2019 season started quite bad with just a single top-10 ranking, and it has been noticed in the large cykelmedie Cyclingnews.
six months ago attack Michael Valgren at the WORLD championships in Innsbruck and threatened to stab away with the rainbow-colored sweater. What has the Dimension of the Data made by the rider? He left the Astana, but is not at all to know in relation to last year's model, sound the in the assessment.
- Not just have dane set out to lack the form. This Sunday the team had not a single rider in the top-50, and only one completed the race. E3 BinckBank Classic was almost just as bad with a rider in the top-60 and the three implementing agencies.
- It is publicly known that the team's device to the classics part of the disease in the Algarve, but they have not shown signs of recovering.

TV2's cykelekspert Chris Anker Sørensen calls for calm.
- He has a little bit of the disease, and such a one as Peter Sagan is also the first to find itself. I have even tried, and it is difficult with the disease. We must not say: It is the Dimension of the Data, which is the cause of it all, he says to Ekstra Bladet.
- Many wondered why the switch to the Dimension Data. How do you see it?
- They have had a bad year, and it has worked, it has sailed a little. But I know Valgren as very serious and good to work out though, so I'm not so concerned about. And he is good on its own, for it was not always, he got so much help from his team in the past. He had hardly won the Amstel Gold Race without Fuglsang.
Expectations for Valgren is also increased by the large farms.
- He did, of course, an absolutely fantastic performance last year, and we expect a lot for it. But even if you are a svinegod cyclist, so it is not easy, if you're only running at 90%, he says.
- he May well run up in the spring, how many races immediately is good for him?
- He has been too far away, and I don't think that he can come back to Flanders. But I think that he can do something in the Ardennes as f.ex. Liège-Bastogne-Liège.
- You may like to call me after Liège-Bastogne-Liège, if it then still not gone well, so I would like to go into a panic along with you.
Ardennerklassikerne consists of the Amstel Gold Race (As Valgren won last year), La Flèche Wallone and Liège-Bastogne-Liège.
