Benjamen Thomas wins the second stage of Mayenne loops after a difficult and exhausting stage.
"The final climb was very hard with a very demanding last climb. It was a sprint the way I like them and I'm obviously very happy with the result. Tactically we decided to join a breakaway with Eddy (Finé) and Alexandre ( Delettre). At the foot of the last hill, I decided to anticipate and set a great pace. I started my sprint early and it worked. It's the kind of race I like because I can to show my qualities there. I wanted to have fun at the Boucles de la Mayenne. I am having fun and it is also a good thing for the team. We will now do everything necessary to defend the jersey until the end !".
