Clément Venturini

“It’s a good omen because it’s been three weekends that I’ve been seen at the front. The previous times I worked for the ARKEA-B&B HOTELS team, where I was taken back not very far from the finish. There, I arrived for the victory. I had my chance. Ewen had a great race, he deserved to win. Me behind, I controlled by accompanying all the shots that came out. We were strong collectively . I’m still missing one place, but already I’m happy to get on the podium for the first time on the road with the ARKEA-B&B HOTELS jersey. My sprint? My opponent was simply the strongest.”

“I saw an opportunity present itself, I went out. I gave everything. Clément and I finished 2nd and 7th. This race in any case gives me back my confidence because after Paris-Nice, I fell ill, and I didn’t really know where I was coming into this race. I’m reassured now.”

Laurent Pichon, Directeur sportif

“The ARKEA-B&B HOTELS team attempted a strong attempt at the start, it didn’t work, and it was a problem. The race was neutralized following a big fall. The wait paralyzed the runners who were very cold. Ewen tried very far from the finish, he did a number. He had a little doubt after Paris-Nice, which explains his distant attack. He is a young runner who is still learning. His attack was preserved his teammates who were in a waiting mode. When the strong men discover themselves, Clément accompanies them. We do 3rd Sunday, 2nd today and Friday we are on our Breton lands.”
