"I had invested a lot in this Paris-Roubaix, mainly with a training camp in Belarus.  It requires a lot to still love this race after all these years."

Benoît Jarrier was the best rider of the Bretagne-Seche Environment team in Paris-Roubaix. He finished 38th, 3'21" behind winner John Degenkolb. He was taken out of the battle for a spot in the Top 20 by a  puncture just before the Carrefour de l'Arbre.


Overall, Paris-Roubaix was marked by much bad luck for Bretagne. Pierre-Luc Périchon who spent 160 kilometers in the break, had four flat tires and a broken bike that prevented him from using certain gears for 40km after the Arenberg forest.


Yauheni Hutarovich punctured, broke a wheel and was unable to change his bike.


Pierre-Luc Périchon (101st), Matthew Boulo (121st), Christophe Laborie (122nd) and Frederick Brun (130th) finished the race. Yauheni Hutarovich, Dan McLay and Kevin Ledanois abandoned.  


"Some days you have so much bad luck," Jarrier said. "That was my case today and I punctured just before the Carrefour de l'Arbre. I was good and I was well throughout the race. My job was to be there to give a wheel to one of our leaders. Of course I would have done so, that's the rule, but fortunately it did not happen. I do not like to fight for position, so when we were only 50-60, I was more comfortable on the cobblestones. I got better and better. I saw myself hit the jackpot! Until my flat tire..."


"I dreamed of joining the break of the day and I did it," Perichon said. "I spent 160 kilometers in the front and yet I am very, very disappointed. My legs were on fire and I had the means to go with my last breakaway companions until the last 20 kilometers. But after I punctured at Troisvilles, I broke my rear derailleur sensor and had to ride 40km after the Arenberg Forest on the 11. And when I could finally change the bike, I punctured on the Marc Madiot sector, and again later. Of my three Paris-Roubaix, it was the one where I felt the best. I am very disappointed."


"I felt very good, but I punctured on sector 21, and then I broke my front wheel on sector 19," Hutarovich said. "Then just before the Arenberg forest, I broke my front wheel again and suddenly I couldn't change gear. Then the race was already over. I had invested a lot in this Paris-Roubaix, mainly with a training camp in Belarus.  It requires a lot to still love this race after all these years."
