 “Still” no top result in France at Classic Grand Besancon UCI 1.1

“Crisp and it still needs the finishing touches” the short comment on today’s race!

3000 meters of altitude spread over 177 kilometers from Besancon to Montfaucon. Especially the finale had it in itself.

Theoretically exactly to the taste of Riccardo Zoidl and Alexis Guerin. However, the approach today was technically very intense. In practice, the World Tour was so wide that there was no way through on the narrow roads at the start of the climbs. Consequently, the favorites were already among themselves – today unfortunately without the Team Vorarlberg pros.

Cofidis celebrated a double victory with Jesus Herrada (SPA) and Victor Lafay (FRA). In the top ten exclusively professionals of the World Tour. Guerin and Zoidl finish 41st and 42nd respectively. Disappointed of course, but still confident for tomorrow towards Tour du Jura!
