Romain Bardet : “I enjoyed myself”
“I am very happy with my day because throughout the season, there are not so many one day races for climbers. And this one suits me well and takes place in a region of Italy that I like very much. The sensations are good, which validates all the hard work that I have done in recent weeks. And I was able to have fun; I was an animator of the race with a very strong team around me. I am happy because I feel that my form is improving since I started my preparation for the World Championships. There is still a race tomorrow, and then most of the preparations for the World Championships will be finished. All that will then remain will be to refine things before joining the team for France.”ROMAIN BARDET
