Fourmies - Fourmies, 205 km

Pascal Ackermann

Pascal Ackermann wins in Fourmies

Weather at the start/finish city of Fourmies at 2:00 PM, local time: 15C (59F), partly cloudy, with the wind from the north-northwest at 16 km/hr (10 mph). There are occassional showers which should end by mid-afternoon.

The race: Here's the report from winner Pascal Ackermann's Bora-hansgrohe team:

The 87th edition of the French one-day race featured a 205 km-long parcours around Fourmies in the north of France. The route contained seven ascents, and as these were not particularly demanding, this left the race finale to come down to the fast men. After an hour in the saddle, a group of nine was able to ride up the road and establish the break of the day, yet they were never able to stretch the elastic beyond 2:30 minutes. BORA - hansgrohe rode attentively in the field and positioned itself amongst the front end of the peloton to control the tempo.

As a consequence, the deficit of the field to the breakaway had been reduced to less than a minute in the last third of the course, and several of the leaders gradually found themselves forced to fall back. The final 10 km saw a series of attacks from the peloton, but BORA - hansgrohe was instrumental in neutralising these, and a few kilometres later, the breakaway was also finally reeled back.

The finale was marred by a crash in the finishing straight, which Pascal Ackermann managed to avoid, and as such he was able to maintain his position. Pulling past his competitors with a huge turn of speed, the German took the win in Fourmies and with that, celebrated his tenth victory of this season.

From the finish line:
“I’m extremely happy to have been able to defend my title here. It was a very hard race and my teammates put in a lot of work to pull back the numerous attacks before the finale, for which I’d like to thank them very much. I knew that we lined up at this race with a very strong team and of course it’s nice to be able to reward them with the win. I think that I’ve also shown that I’m in good form, and so I hope to be selected for the World Championships.” – Pascal Ackermann

“The race went much like yesterday. The team was in control for most of the day and in the end, pulled of an amazing performance. In the finale, the guys brought Pascal into a perfect position, which enabled him to launch an extremely strong sprint. Today everything went according to plan, and we’re of course very satisfied with our weekend in Belgium and France.” – André Schulze, Sports Director
