Romain Bardet in Best Shape for World Championships, Says Anything is Possible


The 2018 Giro della Toscana ended with Gianni Moscon claiming the winning spot, closely followed by runner up Romain Bardet. With the World Championships less than a week from now, Bardet believes that anything is possible.


The French cyclist said while talking to Cyclingnews that the uphill race course of Monte Serra was best suited to his talents, but he also added that he was currently in the middle of a heaving training block just ahead of the big games.




Bardet said that he would have gone for the win if the race course finished uphill, but he found himself struggling because of his heavy training routine. He had a heavy training session a day before the race and another one after it. Bardet added that he wanted to be in the best shape possible for the World Championships.


Bardet’s racing program has been quite limited ever since he finished sixth in the Tour de France. He only participated in one stage race during the Deutschland Tour in the intervening period. And now he finished second in the Italian race this weekend – his final build-up to the upcoming World Championships.


Bardet said that he’s finally getting in the form he needs to for the Worlds, and it’s all a result of rigorous training which can often get tough, but is absolutely necessary if he wants to win the all-important games.


He added that anything could happen at the World Championships. Currently Julian Alaphilippe is the team’s strongest rider, as long as a French rider can take the lead in the race and win the games, it would mean victory for the whole team.
