Frank Vandenbroucke will return to racing this week, in the Giro d'Abruzzo. "I have a good plan," said the Belgian, who now rides for Acqua & Sapone.
"By that I don't mean that I start with the ambition to finish the race. If I can ride the competition, then the first step will be taken," he said on Sportwereld. "Afterwards we will make an assessment and see how it goes."
The Giro d'Abruzzo would be Vandenbroucke's first race since last autumn. He was questioned by the Belgian police in late January about possible involvement in the Ferdy Robyns doping case, and underwent knee surgery in February.
