Woods Eager for success at the Tour de Romandie - Israel — Premier Tech Pro Cycling Team (israelpremiertech.com)

“Romandie is always a tricky race, after Liege-Bastogne-Liege, mentally it’s quite challenging, as you’ve done one of the hardest Monuments on the calendar, then you have to turn round and race two days later, so it’s hard. Normally I’m quite binary at this race, I feel I’m either the best guy in the peloton or the worst, so obviously I’m hoping to be on the better end of the spectrum.”
