Tour des Deux Sevres is an elite national stage race, 4 days, 5 stages. With most of the best French teams represented, along with teams from Spain, Belgium and Holland, it was a tough fast race. Mckay unfortunately crashed on the first day, he wasn’t seriously hurt, but he rejoined the bunch after a visit to the doctors car and helped Hartley in the bunch sprint, to finish a respectable 13th. The lads put in a good team performance, with Mckay finishing 20th overall, Hartley 10th U23/ 31st, Wordy 14th/ 36th. We hope to return to France for more racing and to build links with French teams in order to help our riders move on.
