Benoit Cosnefroy: "The longest kilometer of my life
"I really wanted to enjoy myself today. For two weeks, I felt that the form was there. I attacked from afar, it was not necessarily planned like that at the beginning and it was far from being won. Sometimes you have to try and here, it worked! It's not my first victory in the professionals, I had already won the Grand Prix d'Isbergues in 2017, but today it's stronger. I am in my region, I heard my name all day on the side of the road. A good part of my family was there, I'm really happy to have managed to conclude the job. In the final, I managed to catch Kevin Geniets with two kilometers to go. I know him well, we raced together at Chambéry Cyclisme Formation. I went out at the kilometer and I think I experienced the longest kilometer of my life. But it was worth it!"[/su_quote] [su_row][su_column size="1/2"][/su_column] [su_quote cite="QUENTIN JAUREGUI"]
Quentin Jauregui: "We couldn't let it get away from us
"After Alexis Gougeard's victory at the Circuit de la Sarthe, we had another great day. In the final, I told Benoît that we should not miss it. We had a lot of fun and it's very pleasant to be on the podium with him."[/su_quote]
