Clément Venturini : « Happy to race this event for the first time. »
« After my crash on June 3 during the 5th stage of the Critérium du Dauphiné,
I returned to competition at the Tour de l’Ain. It’s always fun to race close to home and I was happy to get back to the atmosphere of competition again. The first stage ended in the sprint (9th), but I didn’t want to take any risks in the final. Now we head in the direction of Norway where I am happy to discover a new event. Every year the footage from this race is amazing and I can’t wait to see what it looks like in person. The Arctic Race of Norway will be my last race before the Vuelta a Espana (August 14 to September 05), which will be my fourth grand tour. »Clément
