Julien Jurdie is one of the directeurs sportif in the AG2R team, but more than that, he's one of the best friends of the new yellow jersey Cyril Dessel. Cyclingnews spoke with him at the finish line: "It was a great day for me to see him perform so well. We know each other for so long and he's a really good friend. In the past, we were racing together until our paths diverged. That was because I stopped riding the bike and became a directeur. Starting this year, we've been working together again and he did great. He has lots of confidence and recovers really well. He must be capable of keeping the jersey longer than one day."
