Clément Berthet: "Accompany Ben O'Connor to the maximum
"I'm looking forward to the Volta Ciclista a Catalunya to see where I stand. The recovery was slow at the UAE Tour. I felt that I was missing some kilometers in my legs after my tendinitis in my right knee contracted at the end of January. After two long weeks of training, I can now say that my injury is behind me and that the sensations are coming back. We have a great team at the start with Ben O'Connor, who will be looking for revenge after his retirement from Paris-Nice. I will do my best to accompany him on the climbs. I hope to further improve my condition to be ready for the Classic Grand Besançon Doubs (April 15) and the Tour du Jura (April 16), two home races that are close to my heart."[/su_quote]
