BENOIT COSNEFROY: "It represents a lot" "This race was my goal at the start of the season with its arrival where everyone is giving 100%.
Second in a classic, that's a lot.
The year has been turned upside down and it was not a certainty to get there.
In good form. After the Tour de France, I was under pressure and I spoke to myself.
The whole team was focused around me throughout the race.
It was crazy. We took our responsibilities.
In the last wall , Alexis Vuillermoz did the work to position me. Then, I gave everything and I managed my climb to the front to control my effort."
