Training in Tignes and Tour de l`Ain

Po dolgem premoru brez dirkanja sem sezono začel šele konec junija na državnem prvenstvu! V sedmem poskusu mi je uspelo zmagati, česar sem bil zelo vesel.

Sedaj smo po dolgih štirih tednih višinskih priprav v francoskem Tignesu sezono končno začeli tudi na mednarodnih cestah. Prva etapa kratke Tour de l`Ain se je končala s ciljnim sprintom, drugo, s ciljem na klanec sem ob pomoči svoje odlične ekipe dobil. Tako imamo majico vodilnega, ki pa jo moramo poskusiti ubraniti še danes na kraljevski etapi, ki se konča na prelazu Grand Colombier. Dirke so zaradi pandemije precej drugačne, a smo lahko veseli da  sploh so.

Sezono nadaljujem v Franciji na Kriteriju Dauphine, konec avgusta pa se nadejamo starta na dirki po Franciji.

Allez!

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.

Allez!
