Tour du Limousin (stage 1): Benoît Cosnefroy takes 3rd

Benoit Cosnefroy : “I limited the damage.”

“The Tour du Limousin is always a hard and lively race where I enjoy myself. The roads are tiring, and very sluggish. The final was impossible to control. The leading group did not get along too well. With Elie Gesbert, we tried to organize it, but it did not really work. Lilian Calmejane attacked at the right time, and no one took the responsibility to chase. In the last 500 meters, I limited the damage.There is still a long road ahead, and at this race, there are no easy stages. Every second is important … That’s why I even went for the bonus seconds.”BENOIT COSNEFROY
