Haimar unhappy with slow start


First of all: I'm sorry for my inactivity these last few days. Though, it's not for the lack of trying. The internet has gone on strike several times this week, so I really haven't had the possibility to post anything. But that's about to change right now... Haimar is not pleased with how he's performed so far this year. He revealed his thoughts about his season to Basque daily Diario de Gipuzkoa some days ago: "It's not been good. My goal was to do a good Paris-Nice, but it didn't go to plan. I started out well in Mallorca, but then I got ill. I got influenza, and had to relax at home for a week. I then went to the Comunitat Valenciana, but I had barely trained because I had to take antibiotics because of a crash. I noticed that my form had dropped, but I was still optimistic I would rediscover my best form in time for Paris-Nice. It wasn't to be though. Therefore I'm not pleased with my start to the season". Haimar went on to outline his lead-up to the Tour, which will consist of the Tour de Romandie and the Dauphiné Libéré. "I won't be in top form in Romandie, but in the Dauphiné I have to be close to peaking. The plan is to arrive in top shape for the Tour de France". His calendar post-Tour is yet to be decided upon, but he doesn't rule out the Vuelta a España if the form is still good. He also spoke of his hopes of one day riding Amstel Gold and Liège-Bastogne-Liège, but that will have to happen another season...

No problem, it was a quiet week luckily.

I hope Haimer will shine in the Tour again!
