Vincent Lavenu: "We couldn't have wished for anything better
"The goal of the day was to win for the AG2R CITROËN team. A few attacks started the race but I knew I had to be patient. With my victory last year on these roads, I knew how to race and it was important to be in front in the final with its small winding roads. I was confident that I could win the sprint, I had good legs. With Geoffrey Bouchard's 3rd place, we have achieved a great collective performance. It's a great satisfaction to win, now let's go to the French Championship."[/su_quote]
Geoffrey Bouchard completes the podium with the third place. Greg Van Avermaet was eighth. "The AG2R CITROËN team was the favorite today and we were there all day long with Greg Van Avermaet and Oliver Naesen. Dorian Godon finished superbly, it's nice to share this podium with him."
