Positive top 20 for Celestine Wattelle in Hungary at Gemenc GP

16 July 2023

The Team Novo Nordisk development team got off to a good start on the first road stage at the Gemenc GP in Hungary with young Frenchman Celestin Wattelle finishing in 17th place and the whole team benefiting from the presence of the vastly experienced Hungarian legend Peter Kusztor.

“The guys rode well today, very positive performance,” Devo General manager Daniel Holt. “It was a good learning day for the riders and Peter was able to show Celestin a few things with positioning going into the sprint and Tyra resulted in a top 20 for Celestin!”

“The course didn’t look too challenging, and there were some good sprinter’s teams, so we knew it would finish in a field sprint. The guys should look for a break away to possibly get the KOM jersey, then just concentrate on hydration and nutrition, and try to set up Celestin and Peter in the last 3km for the sprint. It played out how we thought and it was a nice way to start the first of two road stages.“
