Kaden Groves rebounds from rough season with Tour of Slovakia victory

Kaden Groves rebounds from rough season with Tour of Slovakia victory



Kaden Groves (Team BikeExchange) hasn’t had the easiest of years, working back from one injury only to soon after face another, which made his first European professional victory in the prologue at the Tour of Slovakia even sweeter.

The 22-year-old’s season started well enough, with the rider winning the elite men’s criterium at the Australian Road National Championships, but he crashed at Paris-Nice and had a couple of months off racing before coming back at the Tour de Hongrie. His next race after that, the Critérium du Dauphiné, however, didn’t end well with the rider caught up in a nasty accident on stage 5 and again facing two months away from racing. Returning at the Tour de Pologne last month, he was then disqualified on stage 3, with the Commissaires Communique stating it was because he was riding behind a vehicle, taking advantage of the aerodynamic benefits to make the time limit.
