Amandine Fouquenet: "It's only happiness!"

Reigning French cyclo-cross champion, Amandine Fouquenet has again made the Grand-Chelem on the French Cup.


“It’s only happiness! I’m happy to be able to win two French Cup rounds in a row, the first one was in Quelneuc and now Bagnoles de l’Orne. The race today was more difficult, and my competitors were taking turns behind me when I was alone in front, it was a one versus two match between them and me! But as I knew the tactics they were going to use, I took the time to breathe a little, I put myself in second position. I let them do their race, they attacked each other in turn, and in the penultimate passage I took the option to counter their attacks. And I won. I will now go on to World Cup races in Belgium, Kokside, and Besançon and then it will be Troyes and then again a World Cup programme”.
