The Arkéa Pro Cycling Team riders took the start of the first stage of Itzulia. This one was short but hilly of 105km.

“It was a UCI World-Tour race, with several Word Tour teams having the same status, so it was not surprising that the first stage was difficult. Yuliia did a decent performance and finished in the first pack, but she didn’t manage to sprint. Morgane was in the second peloton. Itzulia is a learning experience for our runners. The most important thing for me is to be in some form of continuity throughout this event”
