Juan José Haedo is making his comeback to form after crashing in the first stage of the Critérium International earlier this month while racing in the Tour de Georgia, where he finished second on stage two, just behind his former team-mate Ivan Stevic.
"I'm feeling good. I was able to stay in a good position, and I had the legs to win the sprint", the Argentinean CSC sprinter told to Cyclingnews. Haedo is optimistic and has good morale going into his first big career challenge, the Giro d'Itlai. "I will reach my peak of form for the Giro, in which I will make my debut. I'll be going into it to gain experience, but will also be looking for an opportunity for success."
Haedo signed with the powerful CSC team after his strong performances in the American races, and has been treated well by his team so far. "The truth is that all of them give me enough confidence to fight in any race. For me, the human factor is important. It makes you feel good whenever you go to a race."
Haedo has spent time training in Spain, and knows many people there, but he's still new to European racing. "CSC knows that it is my first season in Europe, and I have adapt my mentality in competition, but when I have plenty of strength, I can dispute any race," Haedo concluded.
