Second victory in the space of a week for Nacer Bouhanni, who won after a race fully mastered by the Arkéa-Samsic team. Nacer Bouhanni, winner of the first stage of the Tour de la Provence “My teammates did a superb job in my favor throughout the stage, starting with Maxime Bouet, who rode all day.
Warren in the final also did a lot of work to get the breakaway back.
I was still three meters away and had to put in some effort before the sprint.
I take the wheel of Nizzolo at that point, and in the last corner I make the ultimate effort to win this first stage of the Tour de la Provence.
I feel confident, the Arkéa_Sazmsic team, the staff, my teammates show me such a feeling, and that motivates me.
My goal is to bring as many victories as possible to the Arkéa-Samsic team.
I left the Saudi Tour slightly frustrated, but winning here, my first success in France, in 2020, on the roads of the Tour de la Provence, almost at home since I live in the region, that makes me really happy "
