Amstel Gold Race: Benoit Cosnefroy takes 2nd

Benoit Cosnefroy: “The momentum is good”

« It’s a nice podium even if I would have preferred to win. Kwiatkowski was faster than me in the sprint. It happened little by little. We can be collectively proud of this podium.
I felt good and the goal was to be in the front. I felt during the race that I was one of the strongest. In the final, I did a lot of the work.
There are three Ardennes races left and the momentum is good. »Benoit
