BENOIT COSNEFROY : « Continuity and ambition »
« Extending my contract with the AG2R LA MONDIALE team means that I am choosing continuity and ambition. Getting a three-year contract is a great sign of trust from the team’s management and its partners. The whole project is motivating. I feel a real expectation around me. It’s a pressure that pleases and motivates me. The communication between everyone is very good with an interesting exchange of perspectives. I now want to win a one-day UCI WorldTour race and my dream would be to win an Ardennes classic. Today, I’m looking forward to returning to the racing season. There’s a kind of elation to think that everything will be condensed into a few months and that there will be great things still to achieve. I really want to raise my arms in victory again. » BENOIT COSNEFROY
