Team Novo Nordisk kicks off Tour de la Mirabelle with solid prologue

Charles Planet (FRA)

“This Tour de Mirabelle started with a short, very fast prologue. I was one of the last ones to go, and I gave everything I had. The result was not the one I expected, but in fairness we were all very close to each other, which gave me confidence for tomorrow stage.”

“It is very exciting to be here, I had so many emotions today! Firstly, the excitement of racing at home, for the first time in eight years as professional cyclist. Plus my entire family and my girlfriend are here to support and cheer for me and for the team. It’s an extra motivation to push harder and show what we are capable of.”

Hamish Beadle (NZL)

“Today I felt like being the new kid at school again. But it’s such a good feeling to be back in the mix!
The course suited me quite well: it was short, technical and punchy. I really enjoyed it.”

“It’s unreal being back with the guys and the team. It’s going to be a good week.”
