Polynormande - Van Melsen 7th, Martin shows form on home ground

Guillaume Martin showed good forming coming out of Tour de France in the debut race of our three trainees. In La Polynormande (1.1, 05/08) a break of nine riders gave colour to the race. Behind our trainees imposed the pace with some other teams in the chase. The front group was reduced until two riders were left in front in the final. 

With 15km to go Guillaume Martin counterattacked with Cosnefroy and Touzé.The Normandian and his companions were caught by the peloton with only 5km to go. In front Périchon and Goualt sprinted for the win.In the reduced chasing group Kévin Van Melsen sprinted 5th, which placed him 7th overall. Also Yoann Offredo and Fabien Doubey were part of this group.
