The debrief’

“As we might have guessed from the bonuses awarded at the finishes, sunday Alès-Alès time trial, with its ascent of the Ermitage, will be decisive. Kévin Vauquelin is still twelve seconds behind Mads Pedersen this evening. I don’t want to say that I would have signed up for such a position on the eve of the finish, at the start of this race, because I’ve always had confidence in Kévin, but it’s a good position for him.  I’m confident about sunday, and based on what I’ve seen from Kévin over the last two days of racing, I think he’s in with a chance of winning this Étoile de Bessèges 2024 ».
