The competition continues in France for EOLO Kometa, which faces the four stages of the Tour du Limousin. Long days, hilly terrain that will demand the maximum together with the high temperatures that are being the protagonists of this month of August.
Three sprint finishes, all of them with a selective climb in the final part, together with an authentic hilly classic on the third stage are the menu of the Tour du Limousin in which the options are to look for the breakaways and the finish with strong riders.
Jesús Hernández: “We are all convinced and in great confidence, the idea is to go and make the race for Albanese: he is in excellent condition after the period spent in the highlands, he is well, we will try to look at the classification and put him in a position to win. Out of four stages, three are suitable for him while one will end in a sprint that we will try to do with Davìd Martin”.
