Nacer Bouhanni achieves the first UCI WORLDTOUR podium in a one-day race for the ARKEA SAMSIC team in Brugge-De Panne.

“The sprint was very tight on this Brugge-De Panne. When I find the opening my opponents were already gone. That's how it is, the sprint. I rank 3rd. I saw Merlier throw on the right, I was in Dylan Groenewegen's wheel, and I try to "jump" when it opens in front of me, but I'm still missing a little bit. I have made a lot of places of honor since the start of the season, now my objective is to get a victory”.

The Cofidis team had already worked the day before during the sprint to protect Guillaume Martin, allowing him to arrive in the peloton and thus not lose time on the favorites. A revenge on bad luck It was a small breakaway that formed early in the stage. It was quickly controlled so that the favorites could play for victory and the overall classification.

Around him, Ruben Fernandez, François Bidard and then Rémy Rochas (victim of a fall without gravity during the 1st stage) did not count their efforts to support their leader. In the last kilometer, Guillaume Martin produced his effort in turn. His acceleration is decisive: the Norman can raise his arms, finally, as an illustration of the collective strength of the team. Everyone knows that the taste of victory is rare in cycling, making victory even more beautiful. Guillaume Martin had not won since the Mercan'Tour Classic last year, and now has 8 professional successes to his credit. This moment of joy is also a revenge on bad luck, a few weeks after his hasty departure from the Tour de France due to a positive test for Covid-19. Now, the team will work hard, again, to defend its leader's jersey and give Cofidis another stage race victory this season. They said Guillaume Martin: "I'm obviously very happy to have been able to...
