Interviewed by CyclingQuotes, he told he is ready to help his leader, Franco Pellizotti, to try to finish at the top of the general classification.


Tvetcov will the first Romanian to ride the Giro d'Italia. An other Romanian has been selected to this race, he is Eduard Michael Grosu, a Nippo-Vini Fantini rider.


CyclingQuotes: At first, Serghei, how are you?

Sergey Tsvetcov: Thanks i am good! Ready for the Giro d’Italia!


CQ: This season, you joined the Androni Giocattoli Professional Continental team. What can you say about this team?

S.T.: I am very glad to be in this team. It is a really pro team. Everyone knows his job. All riders are very nice, everyone are serious when we have to be and we have a lot of fun to ride together.


CQ: What did you retain about your first part of this season ?

S.T. : During the first part of the season, I had to ride a lot of races. It was a pleasure. I could gain experience in European races. I had been selected to ride a lot of race in many countries.


CQ: The Giro d'Italia will start in a few days. How did you prepare this race?

S.T.: Of course, Giro d'Italia will be my first three-week race. I have done good block of racing in spring. I have also enough time to recovery before we start Giro. I hope that this grand tour will be a success.


CQ: What is your goal? The general classification or a stage win?

S.T.: At first, my goal will be to finish the race. Then, I have to help my teammates who will chase results like Franco Pellizotti for the general classification and Oscar Gato for a stage win. Of course. I am looking for to take breakaways and why not the one will go at the end.

S.T.: Not really, I had just the time to spot the stage 18.


CQ: In your mind, who will win the Giro d'Italia?

S.T.: It is difficult to bet on one rider. I think that Richie Porte is very strong. But cycling looks like a lottery and everyone can be lucky, or not. For example, remind you the 2014 Tour de France or Tour de Romandie this year.


CQ: What may you tell us about your Giro teammates? Franco Pellizotti will be the leader. What is his goal?

S.T.: Everyone is very motivated to do the best. Franco is a very nice person. I would like to say that he is very calm. I think he will be good form to make results.
