Dorian Godon: "Working for Ben O'Connor has made us great".

"It's not a victory but I'm happy with the result. This is my second podium in the UCI World Tour. It was a long day but not very difficult. We were active at the beginning of the stage to get into the breakaway but it was complicated with the headwind.
The last few kilometers were twisty so I wanted to get into the final sprint. I have no regrets, I couldn't do better.
The feeling is getting better every day. Yesterday, when we worked to defend Ben's (O'Connor) leader's jersey, was a great day.
The last two stages suit me well and I hope to do even better. Winning in the UCI World Tour is my goal this year.
We're also going to do everything we can to get Ben to sign the best possible overall finish on Sunday night."[/su_quote]

The number

E3 Saxo Bank Classic : Oliver Naesen 21st

Oliver Naesen finished 21st in the E3 Saxo Bank Classic.
"It was impossible to keep up with the top 15 of the day today. There are days when the legs don't respond. We will have to pick up our heads and show a different face on Sunday in Gent-Wevelgem. The group is good and it's important to bounce back for the rest of the Flanders campaign," said Julien Jurdie, sports director of the AG2R CITROËN team.
