Alaphilippe wants Liège before facing Tour and JJ OO

The world champion aspires to the classic dean and Flanders, the two races in which he was about to win in 2020 and had two mishaps.


French Julian Alaphilippe (Deceuninck - Quick Step), world champion on the road, said at the team concentration in Calpe (Alicante) that he will focus on the first part of the season, with Liège (where he celebrated ahead of time) and Flanders (he crashed with a motorcycle) as objectives, before facing the Tour de France and the Olympic Games.

"Regarding the grand tours, I have the same goals. I know that I will not go to the Tour de France to compete in the general classification, but you never know, since in 2019 there was a good surprise for me." His first objective will be "to perform well in the first part of the season, from the debut at the Tour de La Provence to Liege-Bastogne-Liège" .

"I don't know all the stages of the Tour, which comes a long time after the first part of the season. I have seen that there are some very nice days that suit me perfectly. I will be very motivated, and the rest we will see. For now I am really focused in the first part of the season, the second part will be about the Tour de France and the Olympics, then the World Cups a bit later, but I still have time to think about all this.
