Mark Cavendish and Michal Kwiatkowski of Etixx – Quick-Step met with the media today at a Tour de San Luis press conference before the race starts on January 19th.

Mark Cavendish: First of all Argentina and San Luis are beautiful places with great people. We feel welcome here and it is well organized. I think the organizer did a good job to give an alternative to a great WorldTour race as the one in Australia. As the Santos Tour Down Under is part of the WorldTour, you have to be in top form immediately”.

“It’s a bit difficult to keep that kind of condition until July. But of course, we are here also to do well, and we are here with a strong team. The race won’t be easy. I don’t know how I feel compared to last year, we’ll see. I did some good training in the last week. I like the parcours and there are a few chances for guys like me. I hope we can get a victory”.

Michal Kwiatkowski: I have good memories from what happened here two year ago. It’s one of the races where you always feel welcome. I haven’t had the same condition that I had two years ago when I was third, but of course I want to do my best to honor the team, the Rainbow jersey I wear, and the race.

As for starting the new season with this jersey, it’s a great pleasure. But it is also a big responsibility considering that I’m also the first Polish rider to wear it. But at the same time I’m really motivated this year. We have a new sponsor, and new riders even here with Lukasz Wisniowski and Fabio Sabatini. I can’t wait to ride with this jersey.

My winter was more busy after the season this year compared to past years, but it’s part of my job. I tried to organize my time in the right way. My goal for the season is to improve as a young rider still learning and be successful with this strong team that always supports me.
