Towards a return this summer?

In comments reported by The Gazzetta dello Sportthe climber had declared, on this subject: “In my head, I am still far from participating or winning a race. There is still no certain date. It’s hard to say when I can come back. Currently, I cycle two hours a day, because in the morning I do gymnastics and in the evening I do physiotherapy. I work all day, I don’t have time for anything else. For the moment, no official return date has yet been announced concerning him. However, the specialized website Cyclingnews had announced that this return could rather take place during the month of next July, or even during the month of August.
