Cristian Rodriguez runner-up at Route d'Occitanie 2023
Cristián Rodríguez took 2nd place in the overall classification of the Route d’Occitanie, which finished in Saint-Girons on Sunday.
“My aim in coming here was to finish well overall. I came 2nd. We knew that part of it would be decided yesterday on the queen stage. Today was still a difficult stage. The team worked hard to keep Israel-Premier Tech under control. Everything went well to keep this podium place.”
“Our objective at the start of this final stage was to hold on to Cristián’s 2nd place overall. Our riders did everything they could today to achieve that goal. Over four days, we’ve seen a good team around Nacer and Cristián.”
