BENOIT COSNEFROY : ""A huge team effort"
"We had a great day together. Pierre Latour sacrificed himself very early to ride at the front. In the end, Alexis Gougeard really gave me an armchair ride.
It was great. Everyone worked really well. I did not seen the break at the end of the race and I tried my best to manage my efforts. I am very happy to win for a second time this season. I did my first altitude camp recently with the team. I think I recovered well from that, but I did not feel very great sensations.
Still, I manage to impose myself today, it's essential! I hope we can continue with this momentum tomorrow at the Boucles de l’Aulne.” In the general classification for the Coupe de France, Benoît Cosnefroy is third with 100 points. We are in second place in team classification with 71 points.BENOIT COSNEFROY
