Greg Van Avermaet : « Getting back in shape »
« Like last year, I have chosen to return to racing at Etoile de Bessèges – Tour du Gard. Some of the stages really suit me. This gives me the chance to see immediately how well I am going and even to regain confidence with some results. We will see what we can do as the AG2R CITROËN TEAM.
I had a good winter and I’m happy to be back in competition. I resumed training a week later than intended after having Covid, but it did not impact me.
I will take advantage of the Etoile de Bessèges – Tour du Gard and the Vuelta a Andalucia Ruta Ciclista del Sol to get back into shape and be ready for the first WorldTour classics at the end of February. »Greg
