Sagan will attack with another rider that lacks a big team- probably Cancellara or someone of the sort. They will stay away and Sagan will sprint for the win. Sagan will then go on to win Worlds.

Dunno about the other events

A keirin rider must be lined up on another track event or any cycling event.
He could have been lined up in the team sprint, but our trio has been stable for the last 2 seasons and can fight for gold so a late change would have been crazy.


PS:He could have taken part to XC or even BMX according to the rule!!
