Warren Barguil won the general classification on Tour du Limousin, he changed the race in the final with all his teammates when leader Dorian Godon let go at the start of the Limougeaud final. Warren Barguil
"This Tour du Limousin-Périgord-Nouvelle Aquitaine 2021 has been tough every day, and the heat today has made it even more difficult.
Dorian said he was sick last night, and on such a stage it is difficult to hide.
I had good work from the whole team, everyone protected me.
I still believe in it right down to the line, I didn't want to disappoint my teammates who gave all for me.
I worked well after the Tour, and this victory is a reward for my investment.
I am also moved because this is the first time in the professional ranks that I have won in front of my parents, and my child. I am very motivated for the rest of the season.
I am also happy to win my very first stage race with the pros, I had barely failed a few years ago in Norway, and this time I won after having fought a great battle with Franck Bonnamour at the end of this stage".
