Michael Matthews – I dream concerning the rainbow jersey each evening

It is each rider’s dream: successful the UCI Highway World Championships and sporting the rainbow jersey. For Michael Matthews, the elite males’s highway race in Wollongong, Australia would be the likelihood to dwell that dream for a second time, 12 years after claiming the under-23 title in Geelong.

In 2010, the elite races had been dominated by now-retired riders like Thor Hushovd, Matti Breschel, and the Australian bronze medalist Allan Davis. Within the under-23s, Matthews prevailed over John Degenkolb and Guillaume Boivin.
