Last Marseillaise for the most Marseilles of this event
“The Grand Prix de la Marseillaise is an event that is close to my heart because it takes place at home, especially since this year the Tour de la Provence will not take place. I finished second once in this race which I know by heart, and last year we won it. Just thinking about that memory still gives me chills. Yvon Caer assigned me a role: road captain, I am perhaps the rider who has competed the most in this race. And if 40 kilometers from the finish, Amaury passed the bump, he had to get in my wheel until the line. He listened, did what I advised him, and we played really well on the tactical moments. It remains a great moment in my career, I played my role to perfection, and I take a certain pride in it, in the same way as if I had won the race, for example. We see more and more that the riders who pass the bumps well and have a good burst of speed are going for victory in Marseille, and that moreover this panel is growing season after season”.
