Grand Prix Morbihan
Movistar Team shines in the last test of the weekend in Brittany, with Aude Biannic and Paula Patiño, very offensive, and the Serbian champion, fighting unsuccessfully in the sprint. Consonni (VAL) won.
Seeking to dedicate to Sheyla Gutiérrez -who underwent surgery on Friday to heal the blows and facial injuries due to her hard fall at La Classique Morbihan- a triumph to compensate for the bad drink, Movistar Team excelled during much of the Morbihan GP, over 102 km with a winding circuit -two main slopes and several small slopes- around Grand-Champ.
Aude Biannic, a great host, was the main protagonist of the block directed by Jorge Sanz. She first she marched on a six break in the middle of the race, and on the last lap, among endless movements, she managed to open a score of seconds that were quickly closed by the rhythm of the peloton.
The good support of Gloria Rodríguez and Alba Teruel helped Jelena Erić and Paula Patiño to seek the ‘result’. While the Colombian moved several times in the last lap, the Serbian champion – who came to enter a dangerous quintet with Kopecky (LIV) – could not launch her powerful sprint and had to settle for 10th place. The Italian Chiara Consonni (VAL) triumphed.
