Bryan Coquard wins stage 1 etoile de besseges

Bryan Coquard (Vital Concept-B&B Hotels) won the opening stage of Etoile de Bessèges over Sacha Modolo (EF Education First) and Pierre Barbier (Natura4Ever).

“It was cat and mouse between sprinters’ teams as often happens early in the season. The team deposited me well, we were in the front of the pack and did a nice sprint. I am satisfied with my condition,” Coquard said.

Coquard leads the race overall by four seconds on Modolo, with Barbier third at six seconds. Valentin Madouas (Groupama-FDJ) claimed the sprint bonus and is fourth at seven seconds.
