photoronddesisardsOn Friday 18th, May 2018, we went to attend the departure of the « Ronde de l’izard » located in Fonsorbes. We interviewed some young professional cyclists who wished to become famous international cyclists.

An Italian cyclist accepted to answer our questions :

“How was the first step ?

– Yes, Alberto Contador, who represents the spirit of the team.

– Which races do you want to do in the future ?

– My dream is to take part in the Tour de France, it will be the top of my carreer.

– Thank you very much.

– You’re welcome.”

We also asked to a Spanish cyclist :

“How many times do you train a week ?

– Every day, 20 to 25 hours per week.

– Why do you take part in this competition, do you like the spirit of competition or just enjoying the physical effort ?

– No, I like to race !

–  What do you recommend to a young person who wishes to become a professional cyclist ?

–  A lot of hard work, and just enjoy it !

– Which races do you want to do in the future ?

-You’re welcome”

During the « Ronde de l’Isard », I (Ilyana) interviewed the coach of the Belgian cycling team.

The coach trained the « Lotto Soudal » Team for 4 years and he had trained an other team berore for 4 years too. He gives them tactical advice before and during the race. The belgian team did 118 races during this year. According to the coach, the hardest race was in Italy on July but not especially because it was the summer.

His family agree to the trips for his cycling team otherwise he would not be here.

A lot of pupils from Fonsorbes’ schools were present to see the departure of the race. We all danced a flashmob and met Raymond Poulidor, a famous ex-professionnal cyclist.
