Alexis Vuillermoz : "A beautiful result"

Il Lombardia : Alexis Vuilermoz 4th / Domenico Pozzovivo 6e

"The Tour of Lombardy is a renowned monument, and taking 4th place is a great result. Throughout the day, I felt very good, and I think I maybe had a podium place in my legs. A sprint is always pretty random, and I should have gone to the right. Moscon closed the door a little, as often happens in this kind of situation.The season is over now, and I am satisfied with what I have accomplished since July. I’ve had four full months with the Tour de France (13th), the win at Tour du Limousin, and two fourth places in UCI WorldTour events. I am really satisfied

Domenico Pozzovivo finished in sixth place of the Tour of Lombardy. Mathias Frank was 16th and Alexandre Geniez 23rd."We had a very good race with top finishers, which puts us back in balance after Jan Bakelants’ crash,” said directeur sportif Julien Jurdie. “In particular Mikael Chérel was fantastic in the break and a 4thplace for Alexis Vuillermoz and 6th place with Domenico Pozzovivo, we can finish the year on a good note.”

Jan Bakelants’ crash Jan Bakelants suffered a major crash on the descent of the Sormano (KM 200), falling at the same time as Laurens De Plus. Our Belgian rider fell into the ravine below. He has been transferred never having lost consciousness to the hospital in Como. “We are in the process of making a full assessment of his injuries,” Dr. Eric Bouvat, doctor for the AG2R LA MONDIALE team, explained. We will publish a comprehensive health check at a later date.
