Tour de Luxembourg (stage 3): Benoît Cosnefroy 2nd

Benoît Cosnefroy : « Glad to have found good legs »

«Today’s stage went very well with Ben O’Connor doing a big number in the break that made life hard for the field. It nearly worked out well for him because he was caught only 400 meters from the line. We planned to sprint for Andrea Vendrame but he wasn’t feeling very good, so I was able to play my card. I couldn’t find the opening to aim for better than the podium. It’s a shame but I’m happy to have found good legs after two difficult days following the European Championships.»Benoît
