Paris-Nice, stage 5: "Warm day in the peloton for Kévin"

The fifth stage of Paris-Nice ended with a bunch sprint in Saint Paul-les-3-Châteaux, Kévin Vauquelin was protected all day long by his team-mates.

Yvon Caër, sport director

“Kévin spent a warm day in the peloton, well protected and sheltered by his team-mates. The headwind did not allow the peloton to split up, the last difficulty was climbed at a speed that allowed all the sprinters to switch off. We did everything to allow Dan to sprint in good conditions, but at some point it closed in on him. Now we are focused on the very difficult weekend ahead”.
