I did it and I'm also happy to have grabbed a few bonus seconds for the overall. Tomorrow is a sprint that I have already won but the field is higher. We will also try to take bonuses in view of Sunday's stopwatch. I am very proud to have started the season well for the team and to give confidence to my teammates and all the staff. We will do everything to continue our momentum! " Nacer BOUHANNI "I recognized the final of this first stage yesterday.

I came to this 2021 edition of the Etoile de Bessèges to target the sprint stages. There w...
