Berteau nets breakthrough first professional victory in French Highway Nationals


Victoire Berteau took a breakthrough first professional win within the French Highway Nationals on Saturday because the 22-year-old Cofidis racer completely timed a late acceleration on the ascent of Mont Cassel to go clear on the head of the sector.

Neither of the 2 FDJ-SUEZ riders, Marie Le Web or Jade Wiel, within the four-up break which finally determined the race, had been in a position to cease Berteau when she solid away simply earlier than the ultimate nook of the brutally steep, cobbled climb.
