What's Cool In Road Cycling

Rebellin Gets Ready For Next Season

Davide Rebellin didn’t win a lot this year but he outs in down to bad luck, and he is sure he has many more chances: “At 31 years old I ‘m at the max of my physical and technical maturity and this year I’ve had some intestinal problems throughout the season and that only in June doctors discovered the origin: the tapeworm. I was debilitated, without energy and I couldn’t assimilate what I ate. Of course just 2
victories (GP di Camaiore and Buehl) cannot satisfy me, but it’s sure that next year can be only better… And anyway, the 2nd place at Lombardia and the 3rd at Hamburg, and the 5th in the World Cup are good: they show that if I’m in a good condition I can be always fighting for the victory.

My objective is still the same, win where and when it’s possible. World Cup and World Championship are the main objectives, I will go to the Tour and not at Giro because I wanna relax in May and
prepare in the right way for the final of the season. I’m afraid to dont take part at any “corsa rosa” that before I leave cycling I’d like to try to win, but my team, the
German Gerolsteiner is invited for sure to the Grand Boucle and so I will run it. And in the past it has been difficult for me to have the same condition from March to
June, to be competitive at the Classics and then at theGiro. I’d like to win Liegi, that is a race for me but I never have the luck to win. In the first week of December I’ll start to train, and my program will be the same of last year: start at Tour de Mediterranean, then Laigueglia, Tirreno-Adriactico and arrive at the World Cup.”
