Tour du Limousin (Stage 3) : Stage win and yellow jersey for Benoit Cosnefroy

Benoit Cosnefroy: “I really wanted to win”

“When I attacked, I really wanted to win. It might not have worked. I only put in one attack, but it was the right one. I was a little forgotten in the final, the puncture 6 km from the finish probably contributed to that. We did what we had to do; we drove the pace at the right time. Already yesterday, the team had me ideally positioned. I raced as a leader today, and that makes me happy. Now I take over the leader’s jersey. But even among the amateurs, I have not been used to riding for the general classification.”BENOIT COSNEFROY
