Bettini: Tour "stepping stone to a gold medal"
"I'm not here to win the Tour but to work hard to peak at 110 percent in mid-August," he told Reuters.
"The Tour is the biggest race in cycling but August will be the most important month of my season. Hopefully July and the Tour will be a stepping stone to a gold medal."
Bettini, 3rd in the UCI rankings, has been riding strongly in support of Richard Virenque's quest for a 7th King of the Mountains title.
