Pre-race

 

I will discover for my 10th season in the professionals a new block of races at the beginning of the season in which the Vuelta Ciclista a la Region de Murcia Costa Calida is included. I am very happy to discover these new competitions, including Murcia. My feelings were good in the Challenge Mallorca for a recovery and especially after my long period of convalescence following my injury. I hope that this will also be the case in Murcia because at the beginning of the season my condition is good. My legs are not yet the best of the year, but the feeling is more than encouraging for the beginning of the season“.

Arnaud Gérard, Sport-Director
