Is the EWS beeing touch by a curse?
The racer has again dealed with tough weather conditions ! Rain, storms and strong wind were definitively part of the games and the tracks were insanely slippery! By riding 9 stages along 2 days of racing, the round in France was a proper challenging race: in total they rode 88 km with 3500 meters elevation!
Jérôme ends up 12th!
