BENOIT COSNEFROY: "I wanted to bring home the win
"I'm disappointed with this second place because I really wanted to bring this win back to the team. Casper Pedersen was just very strong and very fit. There was no opening. But I had fun. The team took responsibility. We were enterprising during the whole race. From the first track, we wanted to make the difference with Romain. We really took the race in the right direction and that's why I'm disappointed. It's a great classics campaign that is coming to an end for me and I'm happy to finish the season on the podium."
Benoit Cosnefroy won the final classification of the best young rider of the French Cup and finished second in the general classification.
Our team wins the team classification.
Romain Bardet will participate in the Ronde
Seventh in Paris-Tours, Romain Bardet will compete in the Tour of Flanders next Sunday, for his last race in the colors of AG2R LA MONDIALE.
"I enjoyed Paris-Tours. I enjoy being in races where I can give everything for my teammates. I'm looking forward to racing the Ronde to help Oliver Naesen. "On the other hand, our team will participate in Bruges-La Panne (UCI WT) on October 21, which was not initially on its program.
