Tour de l’Ain: Jake Stewart, his 1st in pros: “It’s just great…” – Cyclism’Actu

-

He had never lifted his arms in the pro peloton. It is now done! Jake Stewart (Groupama-FDJ) finally won his first professional victory by winning the opening day of the Tour de l’Ain on Tuesday. The British sprinter was ahead of the Romain Cardis line (St Michel-Auber 93) in Val-Revermont. Much more than a simple success, this victory is a real deliverance for the 22-year-old runner – 2nd in the Omloop Het Nieuwsblad 2021 – who has notably gone through difficult times in recent months between injuries and health problems. A relief and a lot of emotion that he revealed in his arrival interview.Video – Jake Stewart on the verge of tears after his 1st success in Pros “I am so grateful to my teammates and the whole team” “C It’s just great! It’s so emotional… Groupama-FDJ, my family… Everyone has made huge sacrifices to get me here, since I was a Junior. And I I finally got this victory after which I have been running for so long! This one is for all those who have supported me from the start. It takes away the enormous weight that I had on my shoulders”, reacted the native of Coventry, with tears in his eyes, before looking back on the superb work of his Groupama-FDJ teammates. “They did an amazing job today (Tuesday). We came with a plan in mind, we’ve known for a long time that this first step is perfect for me. I’m so grateful to them and the whole team “. Asked about the attempts of the Quick-Step Alpha Vinyl and in particular Rémi Cavagna’s almost successful kilometer shot, Jake Stewart admitted to being scared for a moment. “They tried from afar, they didn’t believe in their chances in the sprint. When I saw that there was one (Rémi Cavagna, editor’s note) left 600 meters from the line, I told Lars (Van den Berg) to go there, because it was starting to be dangerous. He took me to 300m, and there a guy threw from afar (Romain Cardis, editor’s note), I followed. I know my qualities, I I know I can last a long time in a sprint, so it didn’t scare me. In the end, I passed him right on the line!”. Now overall leader, the young sprinter does not expect to be able to defend his tunic on Wednesday. “I think it’s going to be difficult”, he slipped, laughing, still under the influence of emotion. “I’ve been chasing that win for ð ¬ð ¨ ð ¥ð ¨ð §ð ” ⠤�’�An emotional Jake Stewart struggles to hold back the tears after his first professional stage victory ðŸ˜ðŸ‡¬ 🇧#TDA22 | @jakey_stewart | @GroupamaFDJ pic.twitter.com/9hO1RKzE0H — Eurosport (@eurosport) August 9, 2022
