Itzulia Basque Country (April 5 – 10)

LARRY WARBASSE : “This race is always difficult”

“I feel that the form is getting closer to where I want it. The sensations were not that great when I returned to racing. Then after Tirreno-Adriatico, I was able to do a good block of training at home and I feel that I have been improving. We have a great team at this Tour of the Basque Country (Itzulia Basque Country) and I am happy to be at the start. It’s always a difficult race; it will also help me to work towards the rest of the season, and especially for the Giro d’Italia which is my big goal.”LARRY WARBASSE
