Boucles de la Mayenne (May 26-29)

Benoît Cosnefroy : « Win a stage »

« I have just finished a training camp in the Sierra Nevada which went very well. We did a good block of work ahead of the second part of the season with a mix of riding at elevation and doing a few more leisurely outings. We all worked well. I am approaching the Boucles de la Mayenne with a lot of desire to do well. There is always a little bit of uncertainty just after a training camp at altitude, but I hope to have the good condition to play a role at the front. The course is a little more hilly than last year, which suits me better. There will be a great fight, especially the first two days. The objective will be to win a stage but why not think about the general classification if it all goes well.I hope to build up the pressure until the Tour de Suisse (June 12-19) and be ready for the start of the Tour de France (July 1-24) in just over a month. »Benoît
