Victor Koretzky: "I still don't realize"

"After my second place Friday on the XCC, I knew the form was there.
Despite everything, I didn't necessarily have great feelings during the warm-up.
I don't realize what is happening to me today (Note : no French had won in the World Cup since 2016).
I win in front of Nino who is a legend of our sport, it's crazy.
I remained well focused throughout the day and I managed to take the ahead at the end of the race. I had opted for my Orbea Alma, hardtail, and it was the best possible option.
I will start the World Cup in Nove Mesto with the leader's jersey of the Cup. World, it's incredible. Today I also realize the criteria for the Olympic Games, it's a source of pride. "

Guillaume Martin wins the Tour de l'Ain

with Ekoï Gara helmet and Ekoï Premium 70 glasses

At the start of this 2nd stage of the 34th edition of the Tour de l'Ain, 142.5 km were on the program. 4 difficulties were listed including 2 passage up the Col de Portes and a finish after a final descent to Lagnieu. The Cofidis team had already worked the day before during the sprint to protect Guillaume Martin, allowing him to arrive in the peloton and thus not lose time on the favorites. A revenge on bad luck It was a small breakaway that formed early in the stage. It was quickly controlled so that the favorites could play for victory and the overall classification. At the briefing, the plan was precise : Start riding and displaying their ambitions on the 3rd climb of the day, the Côte de Seillonnaz to put Guillaume Martin in orbit. Around him, Ruben Fernandez, François Bidard and then Rémy Rochas (victim of a fall without gravity during the 1st stage) did not count their efforts to support their leader. In the last kilometer, Guillaume Martin produced his effort in turn. His acceleration is decisive: the Norman can raise his arms, finally, as an illustration of the collective strength of the team. Everyone knows that the taste of victory is rare in cycling, making victory even more beautiful. Guillaume Martin had not won since the Mercan'Tour Classic last year, and now has 8 professional successes to his credit. This moment of joy is also a revenge on bad luck, a few weeks after his hasty departure from the Tour de France due to a positive test for Covid-19. Now, the team will work hard, again, to defend its leader's jersey and give Cofidis another stage race victory this season. They said Guillaume Martin: "I'm obviously very happy to have been able to...
