Sports director reveals reason for choosing O Gran Camiño

“Once again we chose this game consciously”, reveals sporting director Robert Wagner. “The choice was made thinking about the big picture. After the race in Spain, two World Tour races are scheduled for Jonas in the spring: Tirreno-Adriatico and the Tour of the Basque Country.” “

“The Camiño is therefore an ideal preparation for completing the hard kilometers necessary after a period of training at altitude. Plus, we really enjoyed last year’s stage race.” 

“The organization is excellent, the events are challenging and there is another time trial. This Time Trial is certainly very important considering the rest of the season. The Tour de France ends this year with a Time Trial to Nice”, concludes the sporting director. equipe do world tour anuncia a desistencia vingegaard o gran camino 2023
