3rd in Paris-Camembert, Nacer Bouhanni won the peloton's sprint, and became leader of the French Cup 2020.
Nacer Bouhanni “Everyone has done a good job on the team, Kevin is attacking in the last bump to try to get back on the breakaways, and he unfortunately finds himself in a potato hunt.
To make matters worse Romain Hardy got a flat tire in the final which took away one more rider to ride.
Kévin was caught 3 kilometers from the line, Anthony did his maximum in the group to which we belonged to achieve the junction with the escape.
When we hit Kevin, there are still two riders ahead of us, and I win the peloton's sprint.
We died just 8 seconds from the first two.
"Arnaud Gerard, Sports Director of the Arkea-Samsic team “Three riders went on a breakaway, and four came out afterwards, two in the end held out until the finish.
Kevin tried to make the jump for him in the last bump.
Romain Hardy's puncture cost us a lot, since it occurred 10 kilometers from the finish.
We need 8 seconds to get to the sprint, and if the team has Romain we could do it.
Nacer finished 3rd, won the peloton's sprint and became leader of the French Cup 2020. Nacer finished on the podium but we must underline the good collective behavior of the whole team "
