Another high-level race, all the best French amateurs teams at the start, mostly flat, some short hills the first 70km, crosswind 25k/h several sections.
Today we told the guys that this race is all about position-position and position. Several riders were interested in going for the breakaway and I saw they really tried.
Today was pretty hard already from the start with a lot of crosswinds and attacks, I was always in the first group and I tried to save the energy for the final. In the end, in the sprint, I was in a good position but the cramps stopped me.
