Aurelien Paret-Peintre :"Happy to start this new chapter”
"I tried to enjoy my last weeks with my buddies at the Chambéry Cyclisme Formation. I’m not really changing jerseys, but I'm happy to start this new chapter. I have already been able to participate in similar races as the Polynormande with the French national team, so I know what to expect for this first official race among the professionals. I'm going to start a new adventure, but I know I will not be completely lost. I know some staff members already, and a lot of the riders, so I cannot wait to be there racing with them. I'm not starting from scratch, but I still have everything to learn.”
Alexis Gougeard won the most recent edition of Polynormande.
The Polynormande is the 11th stage of the Coupe de France series.
Samuel Dumoulin is currently in 2nd place (87 points), and Silvan Dillier is in 7th (58 points). In the team classification, AG2R LA MONDIALE is 2nd (85 points)
