European Championships: Benoît Cosnefroy takes 3rd

Benoît Cosnefroy : « I was at my limit.»

« We came to win the title with someone from the French team. We did everything we could to succeed, but I couldn’t do any more against Colbrelli and Evenepoel. I am happy with this medal; I do not regret a thing. On the last lap, I was giving everything I could. Maybe things would have been different on one steeper climb, but there with two climbs I couldn’t keep up. I thought I was going well physically, we did the race we had to do,and I thank my teammates. I was at my limit today, I couldn’t give more.»Benoît
