“Overall, we can say that we did a good Tour du Haut-Var.

We came with ambitions and they were partly materialized: we were present in the breakaways and we had a real influence on the race by taking initiatives. It is regrettable that the results are not quite at the rendezvous, but everything does not always go as planned …

To speak of our protected riders within the team and present on race, Heinrich Haussler was there to continue his training for later goals on the the Classics, that’s what he did, he’s getting there and it is a very good thing.

Alexandr Pliuschin and Thomas Löfkvist suffered from small colds this morning, the season is still long, it was better not to force today.

Once again the team worked well and Sébastien Reichenbach spent a beautiful day in front on the 210 km second stage, which allowed us to manage behind, but also gave him the opportunity to gain experience .

Our young riders are very important to us, and in this sense, the performance of Sébastien has been very positive too.”
