Walm does the Grand Prix Demain
One day after his second place at Noker Koerse, the 28-year-old had gone as a top favorite in the race in the northeast of France. For Walscheid, it was the first success in the jersey of his new team Cofidis and the first victory since February 2020. “I’m incredibly happy. We have retrieved the best possible performance and I have finished finished,” Walscheid said. The race over twelve cobblestone sectors was determined for a long time from a five-member outlet group around Top Star Primoz Roglic. “It was a difficult situation, I was a little scared that we no longer get the group,” Walscheid said. About two kilometers before the target, the outliers were caught up and Walscheid optimally placed in the sprint.
