Benoît Cosnefroy: “I increased the pressure day after day”
« The weather made this last day more difficult than it looked on paper. The guys did a great job throughout the stage to protect me. With the rain, the finish was tense and the crash a few kilometers from the finish disrupted everything.
I’m happy with my feelings after four days of racing. The first stage is the one where I got the best result but it is not the one where I felt the best. I have been able to build up the pressure day after day this week, which bodes well for the Ardennes classics which are coming soon. »Benoit
