    It is a great pleasure to inform you that Matej has been nominated for the UCI Road World Championships in Netherlands in both disciplines – individual time trial on 19.9.2012 and road race on 23.9.2012 Matej will be the member of the 6-elite men team representing Slovakia. 

    Matej is now preparing at home for both disciplines. Despite his conscientious preparation is skeptical about the finishing of the road race on 23.9. 2012. In the time trial he will try to get closer to 17th place in 2008 in Varese.

    The directors of the team did not choose Matej for the international race in Czech republic, which could be a good chance to get in shape for him for the Worlds. The riders were reportedly chosen on their merit. The same situation occurred several times during this season. There are only two riders of Whirlpool Author team to participate in the upcoming World Championships including Matej. Therefore consider this behavior as totally irrelevant.

Matej´s collegue Paďour winner of the race.

    Cyclists of Whirlpool-Author were gaining successes in the race from the early stages. Winning the first stage (Team Time-Trial) they had to set the pace on the front and defend yellow jersey almost during all stages. But the leader from the team was changing after each stage so it was difficult to develop and keep the tactics. 

    Due to decisive racing in the last stage the best cyclists were segregated. Matej escaped with two other riders from the first group and few kilometres to go decided to attack again but alone. He came to square in Olomouc with a little lead. Matej´s collegue Paďour finished the stage in the first group and took the general victory.
