Difficult in terms of preparation, when you don’t understand, whether starts this season: the Olympics had world and European Championships too. And this was supposed to go on my favorite tracks. Now have to be clever to stay in shape, stay in shape at any moment to be ready to leave on start and to show a good fight. But the sport gives me the faith and motivation for daily work”, – said the athlete.

Now I have time to study something new: trying to understand yoga, learn new exercises with a fitness ball, find various options for training at home as a replacement to a gym”, – quotes the cyclist Red Bull.
