Dorian Godon: “Running to win”
“I’m approaching these two rounds of the Coupe de France after ten days where I was able to train properly and vary the pleasures. In agreement with the AG2R CITROËN team, I participated in a marathon mountain bike event and a cyclosportive. These are free efforts. I was also able to watch the world championships on television. I’m very happy for the France team, it was a great race. The end of the season is approaching and I have five great events left. At this time of year, many are tired. We could witness unbridled scenarios. The goal will be to run to win, without thinking about the Coupe de France, even if it remains the common thread. In any case, the classification is declining so you have to play the leading roles to look for big points. On a good team, able to do it. “
