“I’m going to an internship this (Tuesday) evening to recognize some stages of the Tour”

For a recovery, fifth is pretty good. I was a bit in the unknown, this was my first real run in the heat, usually it didn’t work out for me. Under these conditions, I am happy with my performance. The final climb was quite intense, after a fairly calm start to the race. The result is rather encouraging“, a confidant Guillaume Martinwho then returned to the performance of his teammate and winner of the first edition in 2019, Jesus Herradadisappointing 55th to 20th minute.

In any case, it was the shape of the day that decided the ranking. Jesus (Herrada) has been on the bridge for a while, he may have had a lesser day. The bottom line is that we still have Cofidis ahead of the final result. Since the beginning of the season we are still quite good, we continue to be in the game, often placed, sometimes winning. Finally, not for me yet, I hope it will be for soon and for the Tour de France“, said the one who did not win since the Mercan Tour Classic Alpes-Maritimes last year. “I have my head turned to the Tour, I’m going on an internship tonight in the Jura and the Alps to recognize a few stages. We will get there very soon“, a conclusion Martini.
