Tour of the Alps (April 18-22)

Nicolas Prodhomme : « Seize every opportunity »

“The start of the season was not what I expected with my crash in training in January and then Covid-19 in February. I was able to complete a few rounds of the Coupe de France to get back on my feet, then the Itzulia Basque Country last week did me a lot of good. There was a high level.
I have very good memories of the Tour des Alpes last year having been in a great breakaway as well as during the last stage being in contact with the favorites with Geoffrey (Bouchard). It is a race that I really enjoy for its profile and the beauty of the course.
This year, we are fielding a competitive team with Geoffrey Bouchard, Clément Champoussin and Félix Gall. Having three cards capable of playing leading roles will allow us to take risks and seize all opportunities.”Nicolas
