Top result on tough Melun (310km) race

Saying that it has been one of the most difficult seasons of the last years is like kicking at an open door. Bad weather, crazy tailwinds … it has been quite frustrating at certain times. But the season continues and you need to seize every possible opportunity. Yesterday was such an opportunity. It was real pigeon weather with moderate head winds and a sunny sky. After a break with only short distance races for most of our racers, we sent them to the middle distance race Melun (310km). Will this break have been the good choice on the long term? We will make the conclusion after the season. This race was for sure a very good start!
