Alaphilippe: "I'm going to change things in the way I run"

The Frenchman will be one of the stars of the Strade Bianche this Saturday. He believes that the race should be considered a Monument of cycling.


Julian Alaphilippe, current world champion, declared in a virtual press conference that he will change some aspects of his running for the Strade Bianche that will be held next Saturday over 184 kilometers from the Italian city of Siena.

The Frenchman, winner of the 2019 race, acknowledged that, despite not having known victory this season, he is in good shape and keeps intact his desire to win. "Of course I want to win. Good races are ahead. I feel good, but not in the same conditions as two years ago. I have a long period until Liège-Bastogne-Liège (Belgium, April 25). This great Italian stone (Strade Bianche) will be important for the end of the classics. It deserves to be a Monument of cycling. "

Y added: "There will be moments in which it will be necessary to calculate and to run fairer than usual. I will change some things in my way of running". In Italy, the French will be accompanied by the Czech Zdenek Stybar, the Portuguese João Almeida, the Danish Kasper Asgreen, the Italian Davide Ballerini and the Belgians Dries Devenyns and Pieter Serry.
