The debrief’

“The race was extremely difficult, we were in the match until 15 kilometres from the finish, Warren, Clément and Anthony were in the chasing group behind Pogacar. This race, as we all know, is a very complicated one, and our riders dropped back in the final. As they say in cycling jargon, they had a “leg failure”, especially Warren who had been designated team leader. We came to this race with the aim of getting a top 10, so we are obviously disappointed but we know that these are the vagaries of the classics”.
