Sébastien Hinault: "The Tour du Jura is a race for puncheurs-climbers”

The Tour du Jura on Saturday will be a race for climbers, and the Arkéa-Samsic team will not be without them.

Sébastien Hinault, Directeur-Sportif

The Briefing

Sébastien Hinault: “On paper, the Tour du Jura is the most hilly of the three French events that we will compete in this weekend in Eastern France. This competition has 2790 meters of difference in altitude for 190 km to be covered. The objective will be to continue to maintain our good momentum from August. We have a great Arkéa-Samsic team with Nairo, Élie and a course that suits them. We will have several assets at our disposal for this competition, and on a Coupe de France round it is appropriate that it should be so because these are often open and offensive races and sometimes not very controllable. Nairo will be our leader and he will be supported by some solid lieutenants”.
