Julien Jurdie : “As with Domenico (Pozzovivo), he participated in the Giro at the beginning of the season. Clément wanted to participate in a second Grand Tour this season, and his recent run of good form convinced us that we should put him in the Vuelta line up. Though he is still quite young, he has a lot of experience, and will prove very useful on the hilly stages. He will also be able to play his own card on certain stages.”

He can look forward to the Vuelta with confidence. It is a race he knows very well and where he has already won two stages in the past. His main role will be to accompany Domenico (Pozzovivo) and Romain (Bardet) as long as possible in the mountains, and he will also have the freedom to try to take another stage victory.”

“Domenico Pozzovivo proved this season that he had regained the level of being among the best riders in stage races. He has been very consistent since the beginning of the season. His return to competition at the Tour of Poland (6th) is a good sign that he will be a serious threat for a place in the top-10 or even better at this Vuelta.”
