Alan Riou winner on the Classic 44

With EKOI Helmet and clothing

Alan Riou won his first professional victory, winning the Classic 44 ! Alan riou"It's a deliverance! I know I've been in good shape for two months and I knew I was close to winning, it feels really good to come through. This is my first professional victory. I was disappointed after my second place in the Tour de Bretagne, but today the plan has worked and I am very happy. In the sprint, I knew the last mile brought speed. I know I'm quick in the sprint and in a small group I often have my chances. When Godon started his effort on the right, I gave everything I could on my own and it worked. I'm glad the team trusted me. We have great leaders at Arkéa-Samsic, when you have to work for them I do it 100% and today it was my turn. It proves that I can also be successful when given my chance. It's great to make it happen. I missed getting so many notifications on my cell phone after the race (laughs). " Yvon Ledanois“It's great, Alan's victory is really nice. It was a race marked by complicated weather conditions. Anthony Delaplace played a key role tactically as there were two of them up front with Alan in a very small squad. With the speed that Alan has, you had to believe in his chances. He played perfectly. I'm happy that Alan wins because most of the time he's a teammate and today he played his card and won: that's great. Despite the conditions ... proof that when times are tough, only the tough guys get away with it. "
