Benoît Cosnefroy : « Make the race »
« I am very happy that the AG2R CITROËN TEAM is giving me the opportunity to race Il Lombardia. After Liège-Bastogne-Liège (4 participations), I will have a chance to compete in a second monument. Even if the course is more difficult than what I usually face, the goal is to make the race. The difficulty will be high, but the long climbs of the course are very suitable for teammates like Aurélien Paret-Peintre, Geoffrey Bouchard, Clément Champoussin and even Clément Berthet. For my part, I am aware that compared to the best climbers in the peloton it will be difficult for me, but I want to do well. »Benoît
