Dorian Godon: "The most important thing was to win
"It's a great stage to have accomplished. The most important thing was the victory and, in addition, we made the break with most of the favorites for the overall. I did not spare any effort to get the bonuses during the stage because every second counts in the Tour du Limousin. Then I slowed down in the bumps and we have a great team that managed the race well in the final. I have a little success by taking this group of 6 riders. I went after everyone in the last kilometer and then put everything I had into the sprint. I have gained confidence this year. The Tour de France was good for me and after a little rest I'm feeling very good again"[/su_quote].
After Ben O'Connor on stage 9 of the Tour de France, Andrea Vendrame on stage 12 of the Giro d'Italia and stage 1 of the Route d'Occitanie, Aurélien Paret-Peintre on the Grand Prix Cycliste la Marseillaise, Benoît Cosnefroy on the Tour du Finistère, Dorian Godon, who has already won Paris-Camembert, brings the AG2R CITROËN team its 7th victory on the road this season. Marc Sarreau won the French track title in the scratch race and Clément Venturini in the cyclo-cross race.
Vuelta a Espana : Damien Touzé 11th of the stage
Damien Touzé took eleventh place in the sprint of the 5th stage of the Vuelta a Espana. "It was a tense day with wind and the risk of an edge. We were caught in the big crash in the final and I had to make a big effort to get back to the front. The sprint was fast and complicated. Now I hope to get into the top 10", said Damien Touzé.
Because of the crash that delayed leader Rein Taramae, Lilian Calmejane moves up to third place overall.
