Fabian Cancellara has revealed his new objectives having won both a major Classic and the world time trial title this season. The Swiss, who won Paris-Roubaix back in April, said of his TT win in Salzburg on Thursday, “It’s been a great day. I’ve thought about this time trial for a long time and now I can look towards other objectives. Milan-San Remo, the Tour of Flanders, as well as the world road title. To achieve these, I will have to work even harder than I have done before.”

– Worlds’ hosts Austria have announced that under-23 rider Marco Oreggia has tested positive for the blood-boosting product EPO in a dope control carried out by the Austrian federation last week. Two other riders, Christian Ebner and Markus Eibegger, were ejected from the Austrian under-23 team last week after trying to avoid a dope control.
