My contract with Gazprom-RusVelo team was a surprise for everyone. But in fact, the process of signing the contract began long ago. There were a number of related factors that did not allow me to leave the professional sport. And I am infinitely glad to it. It is worth to come back again to the same rhythm and feel the excitement in spite of certain deprivation.
My project of the sports centre which I was developing with my partner during the last 7 months continues growing without stopping. I hope my success as a professional cyclist will be positive for this project.
A period of integration into the team has already begun. I would clear up that I am happy to become a member of this team. It could not be better.
Everything is great and we began moving towards agreed goals. Later I will describe in details the coming work and preparation. You will see the results of the races and read the training reports. We already have a specific calendar till Giro d’Italia and I present here the following races of February.
According to the initial tests, training reports and my sensations I definitely feel myself better that the last year. It motivates me a lot and gives me confidence in the upcoming races.
