Pogačar returns to action for Bretagne Classic – Ouest-France
Slovenian leads highly experienced squad
Tadej Pogačar will make his return to competition at the Bretagne Classic – Ouest-France, his second race since taking three stages and second place overall at last month’s Tour de France.
The Slovenian will form part of a seven-rider squad who will dispute the French World Tour Classic formerly known as the ‘GP Plouay’.
Pogačar: “ Since the last races I’ve been taking it quite easy , I visited the Tour de France Femme to cheer Urska which was great and then had a nice break spending some time at home in Slovenia also.
What do I expect in Plouay ? Probably to suffer a lot. I’ve trained well the last few weeks and feel strong but it usually takes a bit of time to really get back into the race rhythm. I’m really looking forward to getting back into the racing and kicking off the last part of the season.”
The team will be led by Sports Director Fabrizio Guidi (Ita).
