David Gaudu (Groupama-FDJ) secured his first WorldTour victory of the season after claiming the finale stage 6 at Itzulia Basque Country in Arrate on Saturday. The Frenchman said that the win gave him confidence ahead of his targets at the Ardennes Classics.

“It was insane. It was an incredible day. I hadn’t experienced any other like it before,” Gaudu said, who won 1.Pro Faun-Ardèche Classic in February.
