World Cycling Hopes: Romain Grégoire only thinks of the title

Romain Grégoire has very few complexes, and he arrived in Australia simply with the ambition to win. A few months from starting with the pros of Groupama-FDJ, he is at 19 clearly in line with the new generations inspired by Evenepoel and Ayuso and before them Pogacar and Bernal, who refuse to waste time.

On Friday morning, he will have the opportunity to snag the most beautiful jersey, the rainbow, on his already well-stocked list this season, notably with his incredible series in the spring, four victories in four classics in the space of three weeks including Liège-Bastogne-Liège Espoirs.

“He is already very mature for his age.says the national coach of the France under-23 team, Pierre-Yves Chatelon. For a 19-year-old, he is surprising both physically and mentally. He's been talking to me about this World Cup for a long time now and when you know that he rarely misses the goals he sets for himself,
we can expect anything with him on Friday. »
Tomorrow, in the absence of the winner of the Tour de l'Avenir, the Belgian Uijtdebroeks, the responsibilities of the race will also rest with the Dutch with Olav Kooij and Casper Van Uden, without forgetting the Norwegian Per Strand Hagenes and the German Michel Hessmann .
