"I never thought about the victory. The first 120 kilometers were really hard for me. Later I felt better and better. I felt that the guys who were with me, were stronger than me but I attacked and I won."

Alo Jakin (Auber 93) created a major surprise when he won the big Coupe de France race Boucles de l’Aulne with a powerful uphill sprint. Having bridged across to a lead group in the finale, he emerged as the fastest in the 11-rider sprint while his teammate Steven Tronet made it a memorable 1-2 for the small Auber 93 team.


Jaan Kirsipuu and Rein Taaramae have both made the Estonian champion’s jersey a prominent tunic in the professional peloton. However, in the 2015 season it has been a continental rider who has made the jersey visible in a very impressive fashion.


Riding for the small continental Auber 93 team, Alo Jakin has been mixing it up with the pros and has achieved several good results. In the beginning of this month, he was third in the GP de la Somme and he got a major breakthrough when he finished on the podium in the 4 Days of Dunkirk just one week later.


Today he finally made his name known for a larger audience when he took the biggest win of his career in the big and hilly Coupe de France race Boucles de l’Aulne. The lumpy circuit race suited the Estonian’s skills perfectly as he is strong on short climbs and has a fast sprint.


"After the turn 1 km from the finish, I paid attention to my position," he told Directvelo. "I told myself it's all or nothing and I went full gas. 400m from the line, I felt that they were coming back to me but in the end I won the race. It's beautiful! 


"I never thought about the victory. The first 120 kilometers were really hard for me. Later I felt better and better. I felt that the guys who were with me, were stronger than me but I attacked and I won. I am very happy for my team, that's a good sign. I'm happy with the atmosphere in the group which is like a small family. 

The Boucles de la Mayenne, Ronde de l'Oise and the Estonian Championships are my next goals. I aim at defending the national title."
