Geoffrey Bouchard wins the King of the Mountains classification at the Giro d’Italia

« The balance sheet is positive. The beginning of the Giro was difficult since we lost François Bidard and Clément Champoussin just a few days apart at the beginning of the Giro. We were able to face the situation and get back to work with the highlight being Andrea Vendrame’s beautiful victory on the 12th stage, and then Geoffrey Bouchard winning the King of the Mountains jersey was the cherry on the cake. By being very active, fighting to get into the breaks, Bouchard demonstrated his courage and determination. He knows how to do what he has to in order to achieve his goals. It is no coincidence that he also figured highly in the most aggressive rider classification. He did not ride defensively only, and the fact that just four French riders have managed to win this jersey at the Giro (Louison Bobet (1951), Raphaël Geminiani (1952 – 1957), Fignon (1984)), and that very few cyclists have succeeded in doubling up on Vuelta-Giro KOM classification victories, proves it. This is a great accomplishment, especially since this is only his third Grand Tour»Laurent
