Nacer Bouhanni won his 3rd success in the North, the 9th since the start of the season for the Arkéa-SamsicTeam.
“The race was very fast from the start, but the team controlled as much as possible to make it a sprint.
Benoit Jarrier, Florian Vachon & Alan Riou held the helm in front of the peloton Donavan Grondin pulled a good stretch to the last corner, and then I had Bram Welten and Dan McLay to start the sprint. I just had to finish the job. "
"I'm happy to win this event for the Arkéa-Samsic team, but also for Florian Vachon who was competing in the last race of his professional career today.
I told him while laughing last night, "like tomorrow, it's your last competition, you'll keep your bibs!"
"He told me then" only if you win! I told him then, "I'll try to win for you." I also gave Florian my cup and the bouquet.
It’s good to end up like this. It gives us all a boost. I am happy to offer him the end of his career with this success ”.
“After the Brussels Classic, it was complicated.
I had pain all over, especially in the neck.
Once the aches were gone, I did a big week of training.
The recovery in Italy did me good: the Gi ro della Toscana & the Coppa Sabatini.
The average was high on these two events.
The second day, it was a puncher's arrival.
It allowed me to get back into it, because I did not run for a while between Brussels and these two events, now I will continue with Paris-Camembert & Paris-Chauny ".
