Déjà vu for Clément Berthet who loses to Lenny Martinez once again "just like in the Tour du Doubs"

Ever since his switch from mountain bikes to road cycling in 2021, the French Clément Berthet has been gradually improving to the level where he finally dares to call his shot at winning big races. However there is one man opposed to Berthet getting his first professional victory, with Lenny Martinez condemning his older compatriot to second places. Most recently at the Mercan'Tour Classic.

"At the foot of the Col de la Couillole, I was ideally positioned, and the team did a great job. It was a tactical climb with a lot of attacks and accelerations to close the gaps," Berthet summarized the early phases of the race in a press communication.

"A small group broke away at the front, and I managed to go with them. Lenny (Martinez) caught up at the end of the climb, just like in the Tour du Doubs, which brought back memories. Then, we worked well together to prevent the group behind from catching up, but I was really at my limit. I didn't have the legs to sprint that long when he attacked with one kilometer to go."
