Tour de la Provence (Prologue) : Victory for Alexandre Geniez!

“I have never won an individual time trial,but there is a first time for everything! This prologue on the Castellet circuit was really pleasant, it’s not very often you have a chance to race on a circuit like that. After my win at La Marseillaise, I was not really thinking about the victory this morning. But I am very happy to take the win, and continue my good start to the season. I started the day with the number 1 bib and now I am wearing the leader’s jersey. To make a long story short, everything went well today. Tony did a good time trial, so there really aren’t any other questions. We know that the race will come to a head at the top of the Espigoulier on Saturday. The team is ready and motivated to continue this good momentum.”"Alexandre Geniez

A.Geniez’s victory is the fourth for the AG2R LA MONDIALE team this season. The rider from Aveyron has already raised his arms in victory at the GP de la Marseillaise. The other victories for the team: 5th stage and final overall classification at the Etoile de Bessèges: T.Gallopin

T.Gallopin, winner of the Etoile de Bessèges and that stage race’s final time trial, finished in 4th place of the prologue for the Tour de Provence, 7 seconds behind teammate A.Geniez. He will start the first road stage of this event wearing the jersey for the most combative rider.
