Grand Prix d'Isbergues : "2 nice cards in our deck"

The penultimate round of the French Cup, the profile of the Grand Prix d’Isbergues often offers a bunch sprint as a conclusion.

Amaury Capiot

“I know the Grand Prix d’Isbergues from last season. It will be a battle between the different sprinters’ teams and we can expect a placement battle. We will have to race together as we know how to do and as we did in Fourmies in order to get a good result again. “

Arnaud Gérard, sport director

“Isbergues offers an atypical course with a circuit to start with, an in-line section and then 6 final laps of the circuit. There will be some bumps on the line: if they are not very steep, they can be very exposed to the wind. It is possible that a breakaway that manages to get along will go far, but there will be a lot of sprinters teams that will not want to let the victory slip away. We are lucky to have 2 good cards in our possession with Hugo and Amaury. Amaury is 2nd in the provisional general classification of the Coupe de France, so there will also be that extra stake.”
