Clement Venturini : "A touch delayed"
"It was a difficult day with 2800 meters of vertical gain and three steep climbs. The last climb 30 km from the finish caused the selection. The whole team, protected me perfectly all day and I was really riding in great conditions. Silvan and Oliver placed me perfectly at 300 meters from the line. I'm happy with this new podium, but I think I did not have enough confidence in myself. I had a moment of hesitation and I launched my sprint a touch delayed. It's a shame. Given their palmarès, I'm almost embarrassed to be launched by guys like Oliver or Silvan! I must now realize that I can play for the win in this kind of race.”
Clément Venturini's third place in the 4th stage of the Tour Of Oman is the fifth podium for the AG2R LA MONDIALE team this season
