The victory of Valentin Tabellion (Go Sport – Roubaix Lille Metropole) ended the second stage of the French “stage race” of the Tour d’Eure-et-Loir. Third place went to the Voster ATS cyclist Jacob Morillas. Emilien Guignerre (Vendée U) remains at the top of the overall standings.

On the second day of the competition in France, the contestants had taken a mountain stage from Cloyes-les-Trois-Rivières to La Ferté-Vidame. Along the way, three fluctuating bonuses were played, and the finish line was on a small jump.

The Voster ATS riders started in the French stage race – Patrick Stuss, Bowie Selleck, Jacob Morias, Szymon Krausek, Damien Babersky and Krzysztof Parma.

The next day of racing in France gave us a lot of emotion right from the start. In the first part of Stage Two, many cyclists looked for their opportunities in an attempt to stay away from their competitors. Among others, they tried: Tom Mainguenaud (Go Sport – Roubaix Lille Metropole), Mickaël Guichard, Maxime Jolly (WB – Fybolia Morbihan), or Patryk Stosz of the Voster ATS team, but none of them were able to find an escape today. They formed this, after more than 60 kilometers of competition Oscar Nelson Julian (Great Britain), Tom Chapman (Team BridgeLane) i Quentin Borg (SCO Dijon-Team Materiel-velo.com).

The group forgave the separation for almost 4 minutes – the break-up advantage began to decline after several tens of kilometers, when the competitors who ranked high in the general classification tried to jump to the top, including: race leader Emilian Guigner (Vendée U), Matisse Le Berry (Côtes d’Armor-Marie Morin-U), Robert Donaldson (Great Britain), Ryan Christensen (Bolton Equities Black Spoke Pro Cycling) and Ton Vandebusch (Alpecin-Fenix ​​Development Team).

After several cabinet reshuffles, all attacks were ended – except for a three-person escape. 60 kilometers from the finish line, the leading cyclists had a minute and a half advantage on the peloton, which the Go Sport riders – Roubaix Lille Metropole and Voster ATS Team, among others, worked on.

Quentin Burr was eliminated soon after, and the English-speaking duo’s lead increased to two minutes. Tom Chapman was the tallest before the peloton, but was caught a few kilometers off the line, with Valentin Taplen (Go Sport – Roubaix Lille Metropole) the fastest. The following positions have been filled by Ryan Cortjens (Alpecin-Fenix ​​development team) and Jakub Murias (Voster ATS team).

Emilien Guignerre (Vendée U) remains at the top of the overall standings.
