Dominique Cornu has his sights firmly focused on the 2010 World Track Championships as he begins his first season with Team Skil-Shimano. The Belgian star has already began track tests in The Netherlands, with his new team in full support of his Track Worlds goals.
Cornu is taking this opportunity from Team Skil-Shimano to try out his new bike and gear at the Apeldoorn Velodrome in The Netherlands, and he is reportedly pleased with the initial results. The Belgian rider is known as a specialist in racing against the clock, and will be gunning for a victory in the 4,000m Individual Pursuit, as well as getting a win in the team pursuit events.
Team Skil-Shimano has given full priority to the development of the team skinsuits for this season, focusing on the aerodynamic qualities of the materials, including the stitching on the suits themselves. Their efforts seemed to have paid off, as Cornu has expressed his satisfaction with the equipment. The Belgian star says that testing for aerodynamics is “extremely important”, and that he has already seen positive results.
Cornu will be joining his teammates at Skil-Shimano for the Walloon Classics of Liège-Bastogne-Liège and Amstel Gold after the completion of the World Track Championships.
