Michael Woods angling for Tour debut following breakout 2018

ADELAIDE, Australia (VN) — Michael Woods didn’t start racing professionally until he was 25, but even as a teenaged running prodigy, he was already dreaming of racing at the Tour de France.
After confirming his WorldTour credentials with a breakout season in 2018, he’s hoping those dreams will come true this summer.
“I told the team I really want to do the Tour this year,” Woods told VeloNews. “It’s something I haven’t done yet and it’s one of my big goals this year.”
