A successful month for Team TotalEnergies

Jean-René Bernaudeau’s men turned in an impressive performance for the last four weeks of the season, and the month was particularly successful for the Team, which claimed 2 wins, 9 podium places and 8 top ten finishes.

Wins for Julien Simon and Lorrenzo Manzin

August saw the Team’s riders on excellent form, and they were rewarded for their efforts on two occasions: Julien Simon was the first to claim victory, helped over the line of the first stage of the Tour du Limousin by his instinctive timing and flawless finish. Then Lorrenzo Manzin recorded his first win of the season, after a sprint finish on the last stage of the Tour Poitou-Charentes. A huge result for the rider from Reunion Island, who had not celebrated a win since January 2021.
