triunfo de cousin pouco apreciado

Politt ( Katusha) não venceu a etapa, mas foi o que mais trabalhou para isso.
A equipa da Direct Energie está a dar que falar no Paris-Nice. Depois de  Jonathan Hivert ter ganho uma etapa , desta feita foi  Jérôme Cousin, que bateu um dos seus  companheiros de aventura   Nils Politt e soube resistir ao pelotão. Mas a forma como equipa francesa tem dado que falar, não tem sido pela forma mais positiva. Os seus triunfos têm sido conseguidos de forma pouco ética, aproveitando-se do trabalho dos outros.
Por isso, hoje, no final da etapa, Cousin foi mesmo insultado por elementos da Katusha, o francês aproveitou-se do alemão para ganhar, seguindo na sua roda e atacando apenas para o risco de meta. Os franceses são um pouco assim, tipo ” chico espertos”.
Luis Leon Sanchez ( Astana) continua leader. Tiago Machado cortou a meta na 140ª posição a 11 minutos do vencedor.
