Frenchman wins 100th Paris-Tours cycling classic
"They won because they attacked, and I followed their example," said Guesdon, who broke away on a small climb with 8km to go. "I felt this morning that I could do something with that climb. I even told one of the younger riders on the team. I was very motivated this morning."
- Race winner Frederic Guesdon
France - The long French victory drought at Paris-Tours was just a hazy memory on Sunday as Frederic Guesdon won the 100th edition of the classic race.
Guesdon, who turns 35 next week, had not won a major race since 1997, when he won Paris-Roubaix.
