Jaakko Hänninen: "Serenity
"I am very happy to extend my contract until 2024. The team is showing its confidence in me for a long time, which is a great recognition. I tend to put a lot of pressure on myself but the extension of my contract allows me to continue working with serenity. I am originally from the north of Finland, but France means a lot to me. When I arrived, I had to adapt to a new culture, but today I have found my place in France and in the team. When I am not at home, the team is my second family!"[/su_quote] [su_row][su_column size="1/2 "][/su_column] [su_quote cite="VINCENT LAVENU "]
Vincent Lavenu: "A nice course to write together
"Jaakko is a talented boy and we wanted to keep him for the long term. He is a pure climber, he feels good in the team. We have plans for the future with him to bring him to a very high level. He has our confidence in the long term, we have a nice course to write together. He has a great history in France, first with the Club de l'Espoir Cycliste de Saint-Etienne Loire chaired by Gilles Mas, then in our ranks. He has physical and human qualities that have seduced us, which is the reason for this partnership until the end of 2024." [/su_quote]
