Both "can" and "hope" in a sentence shows redundency.
So we narrow down to D and E.

I go with "hopes setting".

"hopes setting" changes the meaning. Who's doing the hoping...the cyclist? A is the best choice.

A - Note it down : "Hopefully" in colloquial means "it is hoped" but in written form "hopefully" means "in a hopeful manner". This word is so abused that some editors are suggesting to include this as an official replacement of "it is hoped" . Hopefully :no that will happen one day !
