Grand Prix Oetingen, Lucie Jounier 4th

On the line

“We had done the reconnaissance of the GP Oetingen circuit before the competition, because even if it was an event that we had contested last year, we had to remember certain passages. We expected it to be tough both physically and mentally. We had prepared for such a scenario. The first laps the whole team suffered a little, I had a hard time personally unblocking myself. I told myself that it was going to be long, but I was patient like my teammates who still did a great job for me. And, in the end, I opted for an energy saving mode by staying in the wheels so as not to suffer too much, and when that was done as we approached the last 3-4 laps we had to be ideally placed in particular in the approach to cobbled sections and their crossings. This is where the race took place, and then in the Mont. I take the wheel of the other sprinters in view of the finish and I rank 4th, it’s better than my 6th place in the Netherlands, and we are getting closer as the races progress to the podium. The goal is to achieve that in the next few races.”
