Quentin Jauregui : “Make good use of my good condition”
“I had a great week with the whole team at the UAE Tour. It was really nice to be with this team for a week. My condition is good, and I am happy to have earned my best place in a UCI WorldTour race (4th on the 4th stage). Now, I want to take advantage of my form. I have already participated twice in Strade Bianche. I love this race, it is atypical, and we never get bored. My past cyclocross experience allows me to save energy on the downhill, but this is not where the race is won. I finished twelfth in 2017 and I would love to put in a good performance again. After this event, I will give myself a small break. I have already raced pretty well at the beginning of the season.”QUENTIN JAUREGUI
Second last year, Romain Bardet earned the only podium place for the AG2R LA MONDIALE team at this event, which was first raced in 2007.
