“It shows progress”

The Frenchman then returned to his race in an interview: “It’s a pretty tough race, there was a uniform level, plus I fell quite stupidly when I touched a wheel. We were in a small group with two Israel – Premier Tech, it was quite tactical in the end of the last climb, I tried again and I managed to get out. Afterwards I caught up with Clément, I told him to ride because behind them they were going to ride. Then it was done with the pedal, I did. did a sprint a little before the finish and it did it, so very happy I finished 8th 2 years ago, 4th last year, it was a race I really wanted to win so I am. Glad it shows progress. It’s not as easy as it looks.”
