Julien Jurdie : “Racing with confidence”
“Il Lombardia is the end point of the season, the last Monument. During the various events of this Italian campaign, the group has shown good harmony and is very motivated. We are not overconfident before this classic, but we can certainly do beautiful things. At the Giro Dell’Emilia (7th) as well as the Tre Valli Varesine (11th), Pierre Latour showed that he is fully fit and still very motivated at the end of the season. Mathias (Frank) and Larry (Warbasse) will be excellent support for Pierre in the last kilometers.”JULIEN JURDIE
