In an interview with DirectVelo, Maelle Grossetete reflected on her recent performance at the Nokere Koerse race. She expressed delight at the teamwork that led to her teammate Lily Williams securing a podium spot, describing it as a collective achievement.

Grossetete, 25, discussed her transition to the American Women’s WorldTeam after six years with FDJ-Suez, emphasising the positive atmosphere within the new team and the different racing approach.
