Boucles Drôme-Ardèche (feb 27th and 28th)

CLÉMENT CHAMPOUSSIN : “Races that I should like”

“Last year, during a training camp in Vogüé in the Ardèche with the Chambéry Cyclisme Formation, we rode the final of the Faun-Ardèche Classic. So already I feel I will probably like these races. I started my season at the Tour des Alpes Maritimes et du Var and I am satisfied with my condition. I will continue to learn about racing among the professionals because I turned pro on April 1, 2020 and I raced for only thirty days last year, including the Vuelta. I feel like this has given me the chance to ease into things. This year, I will race the Giro d’Italia for the first time, and I hope to benefit from what I learn there for the rest of the season.”CLÉMENT CHAMPOUSSIN
