Tour du Limousin : Victory for Benoît Cosnefroy


Benoît Cosnefroy : “I never had to stress the entire day”

“It was a relief when I crossed the finish line. We had a strong team and everyone did their jobs perfectly. The collective work of the team was really incredible! On the last difficulty, I assumed my role. I never had to stress the entire day. When Guillaume Martin attack sixty kilometers from the finish, I made the effort to show the others that I was there and strong. This is my first overall victory in a stage race. I have not been doing any special calculations, but I am happy to have been able to answer “present” when the opportunity arose. The next step will be to perform this well in a UCI WorldTour event. I hope I can continue to enjoy my form at Plouay next week and then at the Grand Prix of Quebec and Montreal as well.”BENOIT COSNEFROY
