Guardini unsure of Grand Tour ride in 2016

Andrea Guardini (Astana) had all the answers for his sprint rivals at the Tour de Langkawi that finished on Wednesday, winning four stages in bunch sprints as he did last year.

But when it came to his future, the Italian could only leave most questions unanswered – or shrouded in uncertainty.

The Italian could not say if he would return next year to the Malaysian tour in which his record of stage wins extended to 22 on Wednesday when he won the final stage from Batu Pahat to Melaka in another bunch sprint.


Asked if he would be back to race next year, Guardini (Astana), 26 and whose tally of professional career wins totals 39, shrugged his shoulders and said with a smile: “I don’t know which team I am in next year. I hope so. I really enjoy it in Malaysia.”

As for his short terms plans, and if he would race a Grand Tour this year, Guardini was also unsure – although he made clear his desire to race in the Giro d’Italia.

“I don’t know because I haven’t a specific program for after April,” Guardini said. “I hope to be in the Giro d’Italia, but I know it will be really hard because we have a strong team for Vincenzo Nibali.
