What a win ! Geoffrey Soupe brilliantly negotiated stage 7 of the Vuelta, crossing the finish line first in a sprint for the history books!
The Win of His Career
After an electric final stretch, France’s Geoffrey Soupe pulled ahead of the rest to gain ground and hold off the top sprinters, scoring the win of his career at the age of 35. It was a highly deserved reward for a rider who has supported different leaders over many years.
With this stage win, Geoffrey adds to the team’s record of success in Grand Tour races: 13 wins since the team was formed.
“Winning Is An Incredible Feeling”
“We won a few stages here at the Vuelta with Nacer (Bouhanni). It was already an extraordinary feeling to support him and see him win. That was exciting, but winning is an incredible feeling – there are no words to describe it! I was really having trouble yesterday, it was really tough. I picked up a virus at the beginning of the Vuelta, like a lot of the riders. It was for Dries Van Gestel; there were a lot of falls at the end. I took off to pave the way, and was a little surprised when nobody came up behind me.”
