Circuito de Getxo: "aiming for a good collective performance"

On a hilly terrain, the Circuito de Getxo will offer some opportunities for the puncheurs.

Michel Ries

“The Circuito de Getxo is going to be explosive. We have the chance to have a competitive team at the start. Although we can’t predict the scenario, we know that we have several cards in our possession to play the leading roles.”

Arnaud Gérard, sport director

“The organisers have added a difficult climb in the final loop and this could prevent the sprinters from fighting for the victory. By the way, the course is made for the puncheurs with a uphill finish (700m at 7%) and mainly drawn in town.  On Sunday, we will have several cards that correspond to the profile proposed in Getxo with Elie, Simon or Michel. We are going there to aim for a good collective performance.”
