“This is the first time I’m taking part in this race. I’m coming back from an illness, so my condition is not 100% but it’s getting better every day. I think that with the rain and the wind it could be a difficult day, so the first objective will be to be in the leading group at the end of this race and if the legs are good, I will be able to compete in the sprint”.

The briefing


“The Route Adélie is an important event in our calendar, on the one hand because it is obviously a great professional classic in the Breton calendar, but on the other hand because it is not very far from our team’s race department. We will be supported as always when we race on our territory. We will have a young team based around Kévin Vauquelin and Donavan Grondin who will be surrounded by experienced riders such as Romain Hardy and Laurent Pichon, and Dan McLay will be our card in case of a grouped finish”.
