Trofeo Laigueglia (March 03) – Strade Bianche (March 06)

CLEMENT VENTURINI : “Looking forward to racing the Strade Bianche”

“My form has been good since the start of the season, which makes it necessary to seize every opportunity to perform. After the Tour de la Provence and the Drôme Classic, I’m heading to Italy this week for the Trofeo Laigueglia and then the Strade Bianche. I have already raced the Strade in 2018. I have fond memories of it with the 2nd place for Romain Bardet. It reminds me of cyclocross with the white gravel roads. I can’t wait to start this race again. The objective this year will be to help Greg Van Avermaet.”CLEMENT VENTURINI
