Ben Gastaueur : “A good time”
“Whether we’re talking the Tour du Limousin, where I was happy to help Benoît Cosnefroy, or during the recent Deutschland Tour, my sensations have been pretty good. I am happy to be racing the Tour of Britain for the first time. An eight-stage event is never easy or trivial, and I expect the week to be hectic! I think the racing will be nervous on narrow roads, and it will be necessary always to be well positioned and alert. I hope to be selected for the World Championships, and this event could be a very good way to prepare.””BEN GASTAUEUR

The AG2R LA MONDIALE team is preparing to start the OVO Energy Tour of Britain ten years after its last participation in 2009.
