Cristián Rodríguez



“I did a good block of work in July and I’m hoping to get a good result on the roads of the Tour de l’Ain. I know that it’s a demanding race, with some very bumpy courses. I hope to enjoy the race and get a good feeling because this event is an important objective for the season”.


Sébastien Hinault, Sport-director

The briefing

« The Tour de l’Ain will be Maxime Bouet’s last dance on home soil in Andin, as he takes part in one of his favourite events for the last time in his career. There will no doubt be plenty of emotion for him. This event always gives the sprinters a chance, and we have Nacer Bouhanni and Hugo Hofstetter, both of whom have already won this event. As far as the overall classification is concerned, Cristián Rodriguez will be our strong card, as will Élie Gesbert, and we’ll be able to count on Maxime Bouet to ‘guide’ them to perfection on roads that he knows like the back of his hand ».
