La Route d’Occitanie – La Dépêche du Midi (June 16-19)

Dorian Godon : « A team focused on being aggressive »

« I can’t wait to get back to racing after having had a complicated period since my crash in Liège-Bastogne-Liège on April 24. I was able to get back on the bike in about ten days but I caught a virus that bothered me for more than a month. I have been feeling better for a few days and I feel that the sensations are coming back little by little.
This is my first participation in La Route d’Occitanie – La Dépêche du Midi. It’s always nice to discover a new event. We have a team focused on attacking and I hope to have the strength to play my part. We are expecting it to be really hot weather, so it will also be necessary to see how the body will react to the efforts. I can’t wait to see how I do because this event will help define the rest of my program. »Dorian
