AG2R waits for the mountains

Team AG2R's best rider in stage three of the Critérium du Dauphiné Libéré was Vladimir Efimkin, back at 2'43" in 20th place in the 31km time trial. Cyril Dessel was just two more second behind in 22nd place. Director Vincent Lavenu wasn't exactly thrilled with his riders' performance in the time trial, but considered the results a small disappointment as he looked forward to the more mountainous stages to come.

"I thought that one of our riders could do better, but it is like that sometimes," said Lavenu. "Often the races against the clock are not our strong point, but last year was like that and we did well in the remainder of the Dauphiné. I hope that in the mountains, our riders will be at a better level."
