On the line

 

“Contract fulfilled. We kept the top 10, I enjoyed myself on the first climb by switching with the best, the 2nd one was a bit more difficult, but I still made a good effort which allowed me to keep the 8th place. My team-mates really worked hard at the beginning of the race so that we could be represented in the break and have an advantage. Thanks to them”.

Arnaud Gérard, Sport-Director

The debrief

The team was again solid and worked hard for Thibault in view of the overall classification. He finished 13th at the summit of Malhaó which was climbed twice, and was 8th overall in this very tough event. Connor was 12th, just two seconds outside the top 10, and Warren 15th. We also finished 2nd in the team classification. A great conclusion to the week in the Algarve”.
