Larry Warbasse : “A rewarding experience”
"I returned to competition at L'Etoile de Bessèges. Since I have not raced since September, it was a strange feeling to be at the start, but I was happy to begin my time with AG2R LA MONDIALE. Since joining the team, I have had a rewarding experience. I'm getting to know my new teammates, a new way of working in a big structure, and I'm also trying to learn French! After Bessèges, which allowed me to find the rhythm of the competition on varied terrains at the beginning of the season, I am happy to be at the start of Trofeo Laigueglia. I live in Nice and it's like I'm racing in my backyard! The course is difficult, but we will have the opportunity to do great things. After Laigueglia, I will follow-up with the UAE Tour (February 24 - March 2).”
Five riders from the AG2R LA MONDIALE team entered in the Trofeo Laigueglia come from the Chambéry Cyclisme Formation. They are Aurélien Paret-Paintre, Nans Peters, François Bidard, Benoît Cosnefroy and Nico Denz.
