Larry Warbasse : « Support Benoît Cosnefroy as much as possible »
“The Amstel Gold Race perfectly launched the Ardennes Classics campaign for the AG2R CITROËN TEAM. We were all happy with Benoît Cosnefroy’s second place despite the events after the finish (he was initially announced as the winner). There are still three classics where we can expect great things, starting with the Flèche Brabançonne. It’s a tough race where only those with the best legs have a chance to go for the win. With what he has already shown, Benoît Cosnefroy will be one of the favorites. Our role will be to accompany him and position him as well as possible. He must be fresh when the strongest start attacking, and then it’s up to him. I can’t wait to see what he can do. For my part, I am happy with my form which is improving day by day. It is a pleasure to work for the team in these conditions.”Larry
Benoît Cosnefroy has twice finished in the top 10 in two appearances at La Flèche Brabançonne.
He took third place in 2020 and eighth in 2021.
