News: Tao Geoghegan Hart to Race TDF

He says in conversation with The Telegraph that he is focusing on the Tour de France this year. The Olympic Games are also on Tao’s wish list.

“I like races in Italy. The Giro was a great experience and of course it would be great to return with number one on my jersey. ” So why does he choose the Tour de France? “I want to focus on something new. And yes, the Tour is the biggest race in cycling. ”

Tao Geoghegan Hart thinks he can compete for the yellow jersey in his first Tour de France. “Races over three weeks suit me. Especially that last week, as I showed in the Giro. With that race in mind, it gives me confidence to dream of the Tour. ”

“That doesn’t have to be this year yet,” Tao emphasizes. “I am 25 years old and I have never ridden the Tour. Yes, we have seen two guys in the last few years who won the Tour in their first or second participation, but I think it is also valuable to go there with an eye to the future. ”

And then the Olympics. Tao also has his eye on that. “I would like to be there. I grew up within British Cycling, so the Games have always been a big goal for me. We have a very strong team, even if we are only four and other countries have an extra rider. ”
