Paris-Camembert (April 16th)

Romain Bardet : "Getting the rhythm back"

"I am getting back to racing as planned according to my initial program at Paris-Camembert. I realize that I was lucky in my Volta Catalunya crash. It was really a violent impact, and I came away without any serious damage, most importantly without any fractures. The first few days afterwards were very painful, but I was able to get back to training quite quickly. The whole thing was not too damaging, even if immediately after it happened it felt like it could have been pretty complicated. I am not quite certain what to expect at my first race back, especially since I have not raced Paris-Camembert since 2014, which can be a very nervous race. It will really be all about putting me back in the rhythm of racing, with the three important races in the Ardennes coming up.”ROMAIN BARDET
