It is a very fruitful week for Arnaud Démare. The sprinter of Groupama-FdJ took part in the Tour du Poitou Charentes and won all five stages. Naturally, that was also the gc for the French sprinter.
No, the opposition was not of the greatest quality but still, four times in a sprint and win four times, it is few and it is rarely shown. “Du jamais vu”, found Démare himself, this afternoon, after his fifth stage victory to our fellow countryman, Jonas van Genechten. “Six wins in four days time, that was me never did.”
The four spurtzeges of Démare were not obvious but also not a huge surprise. That Démare also the individual time trial could win, was a surprise. And the proof that the Frenchman is ready for a strong fall. Démare won earlier this season under more all for a ride in the Tour de France.
