Démare: “It was the one race to win”

October 9 th 2022 - 17:15

 It was different, we were still a whole bunch left. We rode a great team race, I think we nearly all finished in the front group and we had a guy, Olivier Le Gac, up front with 2 km to go. The whole team did a great job. I’m really happy, I didn’t expect this type of finish with 40 riders, it’s great.

The paths really hurt, but because there were good teams in the break, we didn’t ride too hard. There won’t be many finishes like this in the future. I’m the happier as I had seven runner-up places in the last two months. If I should win only one, it was this one. It’s a super ending to the season.
