Larry Warbasse: "Accompany Benoît Cosnefroy as best as possible
"The Amstel Gold Race was the perfect start to the AG2R CITROËN team's Ardennes classics campaign. We were all happy with Benoît Cosnefroy's second place despite the events after the finish (he was announced as the winner at first). There are three classics left where we can expect great things, starting with the Flèche Brabançonne. It's a tough race where the ones with the best legs are in the running to win. With what he has shown, Benoît Cosnefroy will be among the favorites. Our role will be to accompany him and place him as well as possible. He has to be fresh when the best attack and then it's up to him to play. I can't wait to see what he can do. As for me, I'm happy with my feelings, which are improving day by day. It's a pleasure to work for the team in these conditions."[/su_quote]
Benoît Cosnefroy has two top 10 finishes in two participations at La Flèche Brabançonne. He took third place in 2020 and eighth in 2021.
