Yesterday Carlos Betancur (AG2R) followed up his third place in the Flèche Wallonne with a 4th place in Liège-Bastogne-Liège, a race won by Daniel Martin (Garmin-Sharp).

 

The AG2R team showed good collective strength in the final spring Classic of the season by having Romain Bardet and Rinaldo Nocentini in 13th and 14th place respectively.

 

"First, I want to thank all my teammates who worked very hard and my sports directors who support me,” said Betancur. “We checked out the final stage on Friday. Today, when I saw that there were no attacks and that nothing was happening, I thought:  Go, I try my luck, I fight and we'll see. It was difficult to attack before that and we knew that it could happen in the final climb. I'm pleased with my performance. I progress year to year and I hope to be even better next season."
