On his Twitter account, Romain Bardet confirmed on Monday that he would participate in the next Tour de France (from July 1 to 24). ” Really excited to announce that I will be lining up for the Tour de France with Team DSM (his team since 2021). I can’t wait to be at the big start in Copenhagen in a few weeks “wrote the French runner.
Bardet has not raced since his retirement from the Giro on May 20. Sick, he had to give up when he was fourth in the general classification, after two weeks of racing, and a very serious candidate for the final victory.
Romain Bardet had not competed in the Tour de France last year, preferring to line up with the Giro then the Vuelta (where he had signed a stage victory). Bardet planned to play two Grand Tours this season.
