Italian Road Race champion Giacomo Nizzolo (Trek-Segafredo) is set to make his 2017 season at the Tour of Dubai, January 31 to February 4. He had been scheduled to start racing on January 24 at the Vuelta Ciclista a la Provincia de San Juan in Argentina but those plans were changed when he suffered a bout of tendinitis.
Giacomo Nizzolo: “I worked very hard this winter and was ready to start racing even sooner, in Argentina (Tour of San Juan), but the last couple of weeks I suffered from tendinitis. This knee problem forced me to reduce my training volume and even kept me off the bike for a few days. I am having intensive treatment with the physiotherapist and that will help me to get back on track as soon as possible.”
“Right now, due to the delay in my training program, I feel of course that my condition is not as good as I wanted, but I am confident that it will keep improving and that with the Tour of Dubai and the Volta ao Algarve in the legs, I will arrive in good shape at the spring classics.”
