Tao will not defend the Giro title and will debut on the Tour

The 25-year-old Briton will debut in the French round after winning the 2020 Giro. In addition, the Olympic Games will be another objective.

The British Tao Geoghehan Hart (Ineos), winner of the 2020 Giro d'Italia, will not defend the pink jersey in the next edition, as he has decided to make his debut in the Tour de France, which will be held from June 26 to July 18. "I love racing in Italy. The Giro has been a great experience and of course it would be great to get back to defending the number one number one, but I want to focus on something new. The Tour is the biggest cycling race," said the Londoner in The Telegraph.

Loaded with confidence after winning the 2020 Giro, the Ineos rider hopes to deliver a good performance on his Tour debut. "I adapt well to the three-week races. I showed it at the Giro last year. With this race in mind, it gives me confidence to dream of the Tour de France. I am 25 years old and have never been in this race. Two riders. young people have won the Tour in their first or second appearance. I also think that it is valuable to go there with experience on grand tours, "he said.

Tao Geoghehan Hart is also scheduled to participate in the Tokyo Olympics road event on July 24. "I would love to be there, for sure. I grew up in British cycling, so the Games have always been a great goal. We have a very strong team, although we will only go four," he said.
