Nacer Bouhanni (Arkéa-Samic) won La Roue Tourangelle on Sunday in Tours. He latched onto the wheels of a three-rider Cofidis train and launched his final move in the final 200 metres, coming around Bryan Coquard, who finished second. Sandy Dujardin (TotalEnergies) secured the final spot on the podium.

It was the 70th career victory for 31-year-old Frenchman, who finished earlier this week at Brugge-De Panne. 

"We were outnumbered at the start compared to the other teams," Bouhanni noted on the six-rider squad at the 202km race. "We put Kévin Ledanois to drive after 100 kilometers. This race was complicated with the series of bumps in the final, but the most important thing for me was that I got to the sprint, even if I wasn't taken.

"It was necessary to lock the cobbled parts until the arrival on the final circuit. Kévin Vauquelin, who took a last big stint to come back to the breakaway, was very important, as was Alan Riou. Laurent Pichon and Kévin Vauquelin did a great job on the last lap."

Cyclingnews is the world's leader in English-language coverage of professional cycling. Started in 1995 by University of Newcastle professor Bill Mitchell, the site was one of the first to provide breaking news and results over the internet in English. The site was purchased by Knapp Communications in 1999, and owner Gerard Knapp built it into the definitive voice of pro cycling. Since then, major publishing house Future PLC has owned the site and expanded it to include top features, news, results, photos and tech reporting. The site continues to be the most comprehensive and authoritative English voice in professional cycling.
