Cédrine Kerbaol took the bronze medal in the French Time Trial Championship in Épinal, behind Juliette Labous and Audrey Cordon-Ragot.
“I gave everything I had, and I can’t harbour any regrets. I did not necessarily listen to the results of my competitors at the beginning, and then, the more the finishes came together the more I paid more attention to it, and then looking at the split times, I was quite surprised. It was when Pauline Ferrand-Prévot arrived that I started to tell myself: I’m doing something! This is the first time in my career that I have achieved such a performance in a time trial. I was just hoping to finish here in the bad way, it was my only ambition, and I can say that it is successful! I was under stress but it was positive. I didn’t have too much pressure, and I’m still not achieving that bronze medal. In 2020, I was at the gates of the top 10.”
