A few minutes after the denouement of the 12th stage of the Vuelta, it was in France, at the Tour Poitou-Charentes-Nouvelle Aquitaine, that the Cofidis team shone. At the end of a particularly animated stage, where Anthony Pérez was at the front, the decision was made in a sprint. And the two Italian riders from Cofidis, Elia Viviani and Simone Consonni, both medallists at the Tokyo Olympic Games, showed their sense of speed and placement. The former won, the latter took 2nd place. For Elia, this is his 4th success of the season, the 2nd with the Cofidis jersey after his success at the GP Cholet-Pays de la Loire.
