More and more comfortable on his new Aerostor DRS, Thibaut Pinot is confirming the improvements made during the last months, finishing ahead of some time trial specialists such as Tom Dumoulin or Bob Jungels. Great result in the perspective of the grand tours.

A good news never comes alone, and Pinot ended this beautiful race week in the 2nd place overall. Solid all week long, he even attacked repeatedly Nairo Quintana, winner of the event, on the mountain stage.

It’s time for a little rest now after a big season’s start, and before tackling the long straight line that will take him to his two goals of this summer: the Tour de France and the Olympics.
