“I had superb legs at the start of the stages which allowed me to join Ewen in front, we came out in a good group with riders well classified overall which never allowed our breakaway to gain ground . I tried to attack in the final, but I was never able to dig in. Then, in the last kilometers of the race I no longer had any energy.”

Mickaël Leveau, Directeur sportif

“The instructions this morning were to go into the breakaways with three riders designated for this: Alessandro Verre, Ewen Costiou and Michel Ries. The first two tried, and it was finally Alessandro Verre who took the right step with numerous climbers-punchers at his side But the presence of riders very well placed in the general classification did not allow this breakaway to widen a big gap. “.
