Grand Prix de Denain – Porte du Hainaut (September 21)

Anthony Jullien : «Motivated for the end of the season »

«After the Tour de Pologne in August, I followed it up with another UCI WorldTour stage race at the Tour du Benelux. I worked all week for the team and the last stage where it was difficult for me to reach Geraardsbergen. Despite everything, I feel that the sensations are getting better and better. I have had a lot of racing days (10 since August 30) and I am still very motivated for the end of the season. The Grand Prix de Denain takes place on roads that I love, and we have a great team at the start. We are still well placed in the Coupe de France, so we can do great things. »Anthony
