"I would really like to run already on Wednesday [Dwars door Vlaanderen] but it's probably too close. So Sunday's Gent-Wevelgem is very interesting."

Signs one-year deal with former squad.

 

Alex Rasmussen will once again join his former Garmin Sharp team in the coming days, according to reports. Rasmussen was fired from the team run by Jonathan Vaughters after being handed an 18-month suspension for violating the whereabouts system.

 

"It's really great, and what I have always hoped for," he told feltet.dk. "Now I just have to sign, and then we go out and deliver. Now I'm finally back, which is what I have always believed. I simply cannot wait to get started.”

 

Rasmussen was hoping to return to competition as quickly as possible, with a wish to compete at tomorrow's Dwars door Vlaanderen but understood that he may have to wait a little longer before taking to the starting line once more.

 

"I would really like to run already on Wednesday [Dwars door Vlaanderen] but it's probably too close. So Sunday's Gent-Wevelgem is very interesting. I have to start somewhere, so it might as well be there. Physically, the shape is good, now I just have to mentally prepare myself for it, so it's probably good just to wait until Sunday," he added.

 

Cyclingquotes.com will be bringing you live coverage of both the Dwars door Vlaanderen and Gent-Wevelgem.
