Christophe Laporte wins stage 2 etoile de besseges 2019

Christophe Laporte (Cofidis) took the second stage in Etoile de Besseges from a bunch sprint and moved into the overall race lead over stage 1 winner Bryan Coquard (Vital Concept-B&B Hotels).

The Frenchman out-sprinted AG2R La Mondiale’s Clement Venturini and Enzo Wouters (Lotto Soudal) in the bunch sprint in La Calmette.

“The team wanted to catch up because everyone had missed out on the first stage,” Laporte said. We positioned ourselves earlier in the final. We had come to Bessèges to win a stage, now it’s done. Last year I finished in second place in the overall ranking. We’ll see day by day.”
