Paul Lapeira: "A race for sprinters
"It's been a little over 15 days since I resumed training normally, without pain (Paul Lapeira suffered from an inflamed left Achilles tendon). All the lights are green to hang up a bib, I can't wait. I've been working hard all August to recover from this injury because normally I'm doing pretty well.
There are not many days left to race but I think I have a lot of freshness to finish this season well and go into the winter serenely.
The Grand Prix de Fourmies is a race for sprinters. Marc (Sarreau) showed that he was in shape and confident at the Tour Poitou-Charentes (3 wins), there is a way to get a good result."[/su_quote]
The number: 2
Marc Sarreau took second place in the Grand Prix de Fourmies in 2017.
The last podium finish at the Grand Prix de Fourmies for the AG2R CITROËN team dates back to 2008 when Stéphane Goubert, now the team's sporting director, took second place.
