Cycling.  Bryan Coquard: “I found my best level” – Cycling


Its 2020 season

“I only won on the restart (August 1st, during the 1st stage of the Route d’Occitanie). Despite everything, I think I had a good season. Obviously, I would have liked to have won more. But I have often been placed (twice 2nd, once 4th…). I’m not sure what I missed to do better. Let’s say it’s sport. “

The French championships at Grand-Champ

“Grand-Champ is both a disappointment and a great memory insofar as it was a good fight. It was one of the great moments of my season, I ran into an Arnaud Démare who was almost unbeatable that day. I redid the finale several times in my head but I can’t have any regrets. “

The Tour de France 2020

” The day when I finished 3rd (in Lavaur behind Van Aert and Boasson Hagen during the 7th stage), I think I would have done better if I hadn’t derailed 600 meters from the finish. Here too, it’s sport. It’s behind. And when I remember the days that followed this 3rd place, pfff…. I was happy to arrive on the Champs-Élysées. With my aching knee, I still did not go far from correctional. “

His 2021 season

“I just hope to get back to the level I had last August. I got back to my best level last year. Now, by bike, you can win by being average and miss out on being in top form. I finished 2020 well, I want to start again in the same dynamic. “

The 2021 Tour de France

“In principle, there are three teams (Editor’s note: B & B Hotels, Arkéa-Samsic and Total Direct Energie) for two invitations. It’s the game, it’s the biggest race in the world. Suddenly, it’s a bit like in 2019 except that there are things that have happened since: we had a good Tour 2020 in particular. The common thread will be to display the same face as we showed after confinement. For now, we don’t talk about it too much. We just know that we will have to be good from the start of the season. We want to leave on a good dynamic. “

His calendar

“I will perhaps start with the Grand Prix La Marseillaise (January 31), it is to be confirmed. I will continue with the Etoile de Bessèges and the Tour de La Provence with Paris-Nice (March 7-14) in my sights. Clearly, this will be my first goal of the season. I have never won at Paris-Nice, I hope it is for this time. The rest of the program is still unclear: in Brittany, there may be the Route Adélie. “
