GP Samyn (March 3rd)

NICOLAS GUILLE : It’s up to us to take the initiative”

“It’s an unusual race with a lot of action. You have to expect bad weather, and it could be very nervous. We want to complete this first block of classics by racing with ambition. We could see during the weekend at the Omloop Het Nieuwsblad and Kuurne-Bruxelles-Kuurne that Clément Venturini was riding very hard. Julien (Duval) as well as Lawrence (Naesen) will certainly be anxious to perform in the race and fulfill their roles for the team. I also think Alexis Gougeard, who missed the opening weekend, will be keen to make the most of this race. It will be up to us to take the initiative.”NICOLAS GUILLE
