Clément Champoussin : « Disappointed with this second place »
« I saw straight away that I was passed on the finish line by Nico Denz during this sprint for victory. Unfortunately, I wasn’t missing much to win, it’s a shame because I had a good sprint.
I just followed the wheels during this last climb with my current physical condition, it was the best option for me to play for the win.
I still lack a bit of rhythm, I only returned to competition on May 31 at the Mercan’Tour Classic Alpes-Maritimes, after my crash during the Tour of the Alps. »Clément
