“I’ve got a good feeling at the moment and the tactical plan was the same: attack on the last pass of the race to make a difference. And win the race, but in the final there was a lot of wind. And Hirschi came back on me and got ahead of me. I’m going to do everything I can to continue in the same vein in the next races that I’ll be racing. I’d like to thank the team for once again putting me in excellent conditions throughout this competition”.

Mickaël Leveau, sports director

“A good collective performance in this Giro Dell’Appennino with three riders in the top 10, including Cristián Rodríguez, who is currently in good form and who was in with a chance of winning. Unfortunately his opponent was stronger than him in the sprint. Elie Gesbert and Ewen Costiou also scored fine 8th and 10th places in this race, in which our riders showed themselves to be aggressive and enterprising”.
