Bretagne Classic (29 août)

Aurélien Paret-Peintre: « A balanced team with fit riders. »

« The post-Tour de France went well. I finished the Tour satisfied with what I had accomplished (note: 15th overall) so it helps to enjoy yourself afterwards. I returned to racing at the Tour de l’Ain but was still a bit tired. Since then, I have rested, and I have done a nice block of training. I am participating this week in the Tour Poitou-Charentes where the profiles are not really suited to me but there is a nice time trial this Thursday which will be a good test. I am approaching the Bretagne Classic with the desire to have a good race. We have a very balanced team, with fit riders. I have a lot of goals in the next few weeks, with the Italian classics and especially Il Lombardia (October 9).»Aurélien
