A strong performance was realised today by the riders of the french team, Julien Da Costa, Gregory
Leblanc and Olivier Four. Team manager Gilles Stafler is delighted about the grid position, even if the
most difficult part of the race is still to come.

Stafler: "I’m really pleased about this result. All my riders were fast and to be honest starting from the
second position is a good result, and the most important thing before the race. We are very confident for the 24 hours race because our race pace is very consistent and fast and I have once again to thanks Pirelli for the development made on the new tires. Now the most difficult part of the job starts and regarding the weather forcast report it seems that it’s gonna be a tough race. In any case it will be the same situation for all the teams."

The Bol d’Or race will start Saturday afternoon.
