The ARKEA SAMSIC team rider wins for the first time this season. It is also the team's 7th victory for 2022.
"I've been circling around winning since the start of the season, and I'm making it happen today by winning this first success, the 70th since the start of my career since my professional debut. We were outnumbered at the start compared to the other teams, Cofidis drove, then we put Kévin Ledanois to drive after 100 kilometers. This race was complicated with the series of bumps in the final, but the most important thing for me was that I arrived at the sprint, even if I was not taken. It was necessary to padlock the cobbled parts until the arrival on the final circuit. Kévin Vauquelin, who took a last big stint to come back to the breakaway, was very important, as was Alan Riou. Laurent Pichon and Kévin Vauquelin did a great job on the last lap, I would like to say a big thank you to the whole team”.
