"Ben O'Connor is suffering from a fever and his general condition does not allow him to continue a race as demanding as Paris-Nice. In consultation with rider and Doctor Fabrice Descombes, the team's medical director, we have decided to withdraw him from the race. This is of course a big blow because Ben had shown a good form since the start and had strong ambitions for the overall classification. With Aurélien Paret-Peintre and Clément Champoussin, we have the assets to continue to be actors of Paris-Nice."[/su_quote]
