Brugge-la Panne, Nacer Bouhanni 3rd

On the line


“The sprint was very close on this Bruges-De Panne. When I found the opening my opponents had already gone. That’s how it is, it’s the sprint. I finished 3rd. I saw Merlier launch on the right, I was in the wheel of Dylan Groenewegen, and I try to “jumper” when it opens up in front of me, but I’m still a bit short. I have done quite a few places of honour since the beginning of the season, now my goal is to get a victory”.

The debrief’

Congratulations to the whole team for the work done on this Flanders classic! The guys respected what was asked of them. Nacer signed the team’s first podium in a UCI WorldTour race of one day. He came very close to winning, it was a very close call. He found the opening after his two rivals had launched, but he came back very strong on the line. It really came down to the wire ».
