No longer appeared in competition since his 7th place on the last Tour of Italy, Romain Bardet (Team DSM) made a very strong impression on Tuesday during the first stage of the Tour de Burgos. On a finish for punchers, the French was the first to attack but was overtaken in the very last meters, in particular by the winner Edward Planckaert (Alpecin-Fenix). Fifth at the finish, the native of Brioude confided in his performance of the day.

“It’s really good to be back to competition. It’s my first race since the Giro d’Italia and it was good to be back in action with the guys. They really put me in perfect position on the last climb We knew it was a punchy finish and saw Alberto (Dainese) and I were in a good position so we went and I was picked up 100 meters from the line. I think this is a good way to come back to competition with a lot of determination, and we will continue to do so, “he said.
