American Giro d’Italia stage winner and former national TT champion Taylor Phinney will focus on the spring classics during the 2014 season. But he also hopes to make his debut in the biggest race of them all, Tour de France. In an interview with he tells about his upcoming season.


 “The biggest goal for me would be to make the Tour de France team, other than having solid performances in the Classics, where Milan-San Remo and Paris-Roubaix are very important to me as they’re two of my favourite races,” Phinney said to


“Those are big goals, and then making the Tour de France team and being able to help Tejay [van Garderen], I’m quite excited about that, but I have to make that team first.”


Talyor Phinney struggles during the off-season, but this winter has been great for Phinney. He has been able to train every day.


“I’ve always struggled with injuries in the off-season, mainly due to cold weather and changes in bike position, and not having the available therapy or not making use of available therapy because you don’t race for a while,” he said. “This off-season is the first off-season where I’ve not had any issues and I’ve been able to knock out every single training day basically to perfection, and I owe that a lot to having hired my own personal soigneur and being a couple of years older too.”


But he is tired of just training. He is very happy that the season will for him start in Argentina and Tour de San Luis.


“I’ve been living the pro-life, getting things done and I’m quite tired from all the training I’ve been doing, which is a great sign because now is the time to sort of taper in to the new season,” said Phinney, who will target the stage 5 time trial in Argentina.


“As a time triallist, I always aim for those and other than that, it would be cool to win a road stage myself and see what we can do from the team side of things on the general classification. I’m not going to be up there in the mountaintop finishes but I can help my teammates like [new arrival] Darwin Atapuma.”
