ALEXIS GOUGEARD : "I WANT TO LIFT MY ARMS IN VICTORY"

Vuelta a Espana / STAGE 18 : Alexis Gougeard 4th

“We really have the heart to go for a stage win, and we are trying on all terrains. Today I felt really good.
I could have followed the best, but I had already done too much work. This is not the first time this has happened to me, but this is how you learn.
This Vuelta has reassured me, and I have been selected as a member of the French team going to the World Championships. The end of the season so far has been better than the beginning, so I will try to keep this momentum. I would like to raise my arms in victory, especially considering the kind of form I am in at the moment. Being selected to represent France at Worlds is something that means a great deal to me since it is not every day that you get to represent your country on the world stage.”

THE NUMBER : 2

Fifth in the 5th stage, Alexis Gougeard  registered his second top five at this Vuelta by finishing in 4th place in Santo Toribio de Liébana. He also finished in tenth place in the time trial on the 16th stage between the Circuit de Navarre and Logrono.
