4th and best professional result

“The podium was reachable today, but what I remember most of all is that I achieved my best result in the professional category. I had good feelings during the whole stage, I was with the best in the last climb. Unfortunately, I couldn’t follow in the descent. It was really nice to be at the front with Kevin and Thibault, I had a lot of fun. Tomorrow, we’ll head for the Mont Bouquet. I discovered this climb last year, I like the profile. We will have great ambitions.”

Sébastien Hinault

“With three guys who are very strong, Louis, Kevin and Thibault, we had ambitions this morning at the start. We wanted to dynamize the final. The team did a very good job. We are in a good dynamic, we must continue in this way with the last two stages, the Mont Bouquet tomorrow and the final time trial in Alès on Sunday.”
