Oliver Naesen :"Satisfied with this place of honor"
"With my bronchial problems, I suffered all day. It's my best result for this race on paper, but in terms of how I felt, it was not my best day on the bike!
I got sick ahead of the race, but that's part of the game. Even if 7th place is not what I came for, I'm happy with this place of honor! Considering what weapons I had to draw on for the day, it's not bad. I hope now to have better legs next week, and make a little more of an impact on the race.”OLIVER NAESEN
After the Roue Tourangelle, the fifth round of the Coupe de France, the AG2R LA MONDIALE team currently occupies the 1st place in the team general classification: "It was not necessarily the objective of the day, but it is always good to take this lead, and is a reward for the whole team. Even if we had to settle for an 8th place today with Samuel Dumoulin, I am rather satisfied with the overall performance of all the guys,” Cyril Dessel explained.
