The rumor that Greg Van Avermaet is leaving for AG2R La Mondiale is getting more and more frustrating. But Van Avermaet is clear: “I keep all options open. I first want to wait and see what happens to this team. ”
“I have faith in Jim Ochowicz, who is currently looking for a new sponsor,” he told Het Laatste Nieuws. “I prefer to stay with this team. I’m waiting for his decision. Then I will cut the knots. ” CCC is currently negotiating a takeover with the Manuela Fundacion.
Van Avermaet starts on Saturday in the orange uniform of Team CCC in the Strade Bianche, a match that he has never won, but where he often ended short. “I immediately aim for the victory. I do that everywhere ”, the Fleming sounds ambitious.
However, there are also doubts, because there have been no preparation prices. “It is new anyway,” he finishes. “We have to wait and see how everything will evolve and how the legs will react after a period without competition.”
