France dominates podium in Men’s U23 World Championship Road Race

by CyclingTips

Frenchman Kevin Ledanois won the World Champion title for the U23 road race on Friday in Richmond, Virginia.

Ledanois, son of former professional rider Yvon Ledanois (currently a sports director at BMC Racing), beat Italian Simone Consonni and French teammate, Anthony Turgis, at the end of the 10-lap, 162.2-kilometre course.

Ledanois, 20 years of age, turned professional this year with the French squad Britain-Séché Environnement.

“Last year, I had attacked a lap too early. This time I took it upon myself to wait. When I saw it began to rain, I thought it was a chance,” said Ledanois.
