After a long break without racing, I started the season at the end of June at the National championships! In the seventh attempt, I managed to win, which I was very happy about.
Now, after a long four weeks of altitude training in Tignes, France, we have finally started the season on international roads as well. The first stage of the short Tour de l`Ain ended with a sprint, the second, with the mountain top finish, I won – of course with the help of our excellent team.
So we have the leader’s jersey, which we will try to defend today at the Queen stage, which ends at the Grand Colombier pass. The races are quite different because of the pandemic, but we can be happy that we are racing at all.
I continue the season in France at the Criterium du Dauphine and at the end of August we hope to start the Tour de France.
