So this is the last in the contender series by Corinne Walder and we finish off with your current UCI Elite Men’s World Champion GT’s Joris Daudet.
2011 was an incredible year for him winning the French Championship, all 12 rounds of the European Championship dropping only a couple of moto’s all season before going on to pass Marc Willers in Copenhagen for the biggest win of his career.
They say it’s harder to stay on top than get to the top and after a year like that 2012 was always going to be tougher with more expectation to keep the run going. He’s not had a great World Cup campaign by his standards, but the World Championship is another one off race where everything can go your way if you are a having a good day. So next week we’ll see if Joris can defend his title in front of a packed NIA crowd in Birmingham. There are a dozen contenders who are consistently on a higher level than the rest of the field this season so it could be anybody’s race. Joris has as good a chance as any of them on the day…so let’s wait and see!
