Veteran German cyclist Tony Martin said he is looking forward to winning more than one medal at the cycling world championships, which begins in Belgium at the beginning of next week, after recovering from the accident he suffered during the Tour de France.

Martin, 36, said in an interview with the German news agency (dpa): “If I could reveal a wish, it would be to win a medal in the individual events against the clock and a gold in the mixed events (against the clock). This would be The dream scenario. We will see if this is realistic or not.”

Martin was crowned four-time world champion in anti-clockwise competitions and confirmed that past success means “I’m not supposed to aim for fifth” in Sunday’s 43.3 km race between Knokke-Heist and Rouge.

“I think it’s a competition that suits me very well,” he added. “I’m in good shape and I would be happy to get a medal if all goes well.”

Martin did not participate in the world championships last year, which was held in light of the pandemic of the emerging Corona virus.

This year, Martin was involved in an accident during the first stage of the Tour de France, where he crashed into a sign carried by a woman and resulted in a terrible collision.

Martin, the Jumbo-Visma rider, was knocked out after another collision in the 11th stage of the Tour de France, but said he was now fit again.
