Nans Peters : « The goal is to win »
“I was lucky enough to get back on my bike quickly after the Volta Ciclista a Catalunya (he retired during the second stage after having a crash that required stitches). Since March 28, I have been training at altitude at Etna to prepare in good conditions for the next objectives, which are the Tour de Romandie and then the Giro d’Italia. The Classic Grand Besançon Doubs and the Tour du Jura Cycliste will allow me to refine my condition from training and see where I am in terms of sensations.
We are fielding a very good team on both days and the objective will be simple: to win.
These are races that correspond to our qualities and we have the riders to influence the race. It is up to us to perform well collectively.”Nans
The AG2R CITROËN TEAM finished on the podium in both events in 2021.
Benoît Cosnefroy won the Tour du Jura Cycliste and Andrea Vendrame finished second in the Classic Grand Besançon Doubs.
Clément Berthet at home
The Classic Grand Besançon Doubs will finish in Montfaucon, the village where Clément Berthet lives.
“I’m very happy to be racing at home this Friday. During the racing season, few people are so lucky to have a race that ends a few meters from home. I know the roads by heart and the finishing climb is really difficult. It will all be great entertainment,” Clément Berthet said.
