A repeat performance for the FDJ – Bigmat team, last year's winner of the title ( Arthur Vichot, victor in 2011).
Initially, Arnold Jeannesson was part of the escape group of the day, but was reeled in by the peloton, 80km before the finish. Then another group of 5 riders broke away, including Rémi Pauriol and Arthur Vichot. Rémi Pauriol attacked in the last kilometers to garner his 1st victory of the season. Arthur Vichot perfectly finished the job with a win in the group sprint to ensure 2nd place!
1st and 2nd place for FDJ riders!
