Clément Champoussin : “A difficult and tiring day”
“The stage was difficult and exhausting, with 3200 meters of climbing plus the rain. We ended up being a group of about 36 riders in the end, and so we were careful always to be well placed. I am not a pure sprinter, but I made the effort and it ended well. I went several weeks without racing between the Volta Ciclista Catalunya and Flèche Wallonne. I am still missing a little of the race rhythm, but it’ll come back. Saturday, the big mountain stage will be a good test before focusing on the Giro.”
Clément Champoussin will race his first Giro

Clément Champoussin’s 4th place was his third top-5 of the season. He finished 2nd at the Faun Ardèche Classic and 4th at the Trofeo Laigueglia.
