Valentin Paret-Peintre: "With ambition
"I'm coming out of a good course in Sierra Nevada (May 9-29). The weather was great. As a climber, I appreciate the work at altitude to get the hang of it and the physiological benefits it brings.
I was initially supposed to compete in the Mercan'Tour Classic Alpes-Maritimes but I had some gastric problems and had to give up.
I am looking forward to the second part of the season after a mixed first part. The Critérium du Dauphiné is a very important race for me and for the team. It is always a pleasure to race at home. We will start with ambition and the will to get on the podium with Ben O'Connor. I'm looking forward to the last mountain weekend. It's a good test before the Tour de France."[/su_quote]
