Tour du Poitou-Charentes (August 24-27)

Marc Sarreau : « It’s a race that suits me »

« I have rested well since the French track championships (August 11-14). I am motivated to get back on the road. Even though it’s different on the track, it always feels good to win a race, and it certainly is a positive thing to arrive with confidence. The Tour du Poitou-Charentes suits me well. There are a lot of opportunities for sprinters, and it’s a race that has often smiled on me in the past. The goal will be to lift our arms in victory, and there will most likely be 4 stages that offer the chance to do so. ».Marc
