Junior worlds road race: Mohoric steps up from TT silver

Slovenian gets better of Caleb and Rumac

UCI world road race championships 2012Surging clear inside the final kilometre, Matej Mohoric sped to the junior men’s road race title today, thus adding gold to the silver medal he took earlier this week in the time trial.

The Slovenian rider ended the 128.8km race clear of Australia’s Caleb Ewan, Croatia’s Josip Rumac and 53 others.

“Contrary to what people might think, I’m not a bunch-sprinter. At the European championships I came in fourth but that was because I was in a breakaway that was caught on the finish-line,” he said afterwards. “The course wasn’t as easy as it looks, because of the wind. When the whole bunch arrived at the Cauberg I managed to stay in the front and had still something left. What can I say? This is incredible, fantastic. I can’t believe it…”

Still just 17 years of age, Mohoric said that he’d take things one step at a time and likely ride for a Slovenian Continental team next season rather than turning pro.

Australian Caleb Ewan has a similar surname to now-retired top Aussie pro Robbie McEwan, and also showed some of the same fast-twitch fibre speed in the push for the line. He said that the other riders on the team dedicated themselves to him, giving up their own chances.

“In the end it was just me,” he said. “This was my main goal for the whole season. I even stayed with a Dutch family for a week to get used to riding in big bunches. In Australia it’s about 80 riders, here it’s like 200. So yeah, I’m pretty disappointed, but I was beaten by a better rider.”

He said that he intends moving to Europe next year to compete, but didn’t name the likely squad. He confirmed that he has friends within the Saxo Bank setup, but that there had been no contract talks. That’s logical; like the others in the race he’s still very young, and so two or three years with a smaller squad is par for the course first.
