Nicolas Guillé: "Go looking for the victory"

Before Tour de la Somme (May 11th)

"We hope to follow-up our dynamic performance at the Four Days of Dunkirk with the same desire and determination, even if we came away from Dunkirk not completely satisfied (5 podiums and the victory in the team classification).
At the Tour de la Somme, we will want to get that victory, and we feel that the guys are very motivated. Samuel Dumoulin will once again be a road captain who is capable of winning, though everyone will have his opportunity to go for a victory. Alexis Gougeard, who dropped out of Dunkirk because of knee pain, did manage to ride this week, and we also hope that
Rudy Barbier has recovered after his crash.
The toughest part of the Tour de la Somme usually comes with the wind and resulting echelons. So it’s important to keep an eye on the weather.
