"I always like racing the GP Lugano, which takes place on a tactical and demanding circuit.  It is important to be wary of the early breakaway and to be well placed on the approach to the final climb before the finish."

After having been forced to abandon the second stage of the Tour du Haut-Var, Jonathan Fumeaux was legitimately disappointed in the face of his well-founded ambitions to perform well in France.  Not one to dwell on the negative, Fumeaux has quickly turned the page and is ready to focus on his next event.  At the GP Lugano, the IAM Cycling rider is determined to play a leading role along with his seven other teammates.
In considering the task ahead, Fumeaux emphasized the importance of being well positioned, but also the necessity to control the race after having ended his Haut-Var campaign on the road to Draguignan with an inopportune crash. 


“I could not avoid crashing in the first kilometers of the race on Sunday.  I found myself on the ground after being hit by another rider.  Ripped up and shocked because of the violence of the impact, I still made it back to the pack after a pursuit lasting more than twenty kilometers.  But I had to admit to the obvious; I was no longer in any condition to play a leading role, in spite of the fact I felt great the day before. 


"No crash is ever trivial, so I’ll try to recover and make use of the osteopath to expedite my progress.  I want to recapture to good sensations I had before this incident.  I always like racing the GP Lugano, which takes place on a tactical and demanding circuit.  It is important to be wary of the early breakaway and to be well placed on the approach to the final climb before the finish.  Typically, the victor comes out of a group of twenty riders.”
Known for his explosiveness in the final of a race, Fumeaux who comes from the Valais region in Switzerland, is looking forward to his appointment in Ticino, the Italian region of the country. 


“I like races in our country.  There are none of the masses, and this allows us to show the jersey.  We are lining up with a strong team; after the great performances of recent weeks, our solidarity can no longer be in doubt.  And there will be plenty to do on Sunday, especially because not only will the competition be strong, but the course will be difficult.”
