"I believe we have witnessed a unique moment in the cycling history similar to when an aging Fausto Coppi raced against the espoir French phenomena Jacques Anquetil, and when an older Anquetil raced against the young Belgian rider Eddy Merckx.

Although Madame Longo will race in the future, as Coppi did with Anquetil, the heir-apparent Mademoiselle Jeanson has seized the moment.

Myself and one other teammate drove the break for about 2/3 of that race, trying to set up two other teammates for the win. I was as tired as I look. That was a brutal crit course.
