Lilian Calmejane has just finished his first pro season in 2016 and the balance is positive for the 24-year-old neo-pro. He impressed in many races, and took his first victory on the 4th stage of the Vuelta. Manage Jean-Rene Bernaudeau has decided to extend his contract until 2018.

 

“The balance sheet is excellent at all levels, both in terms of results and my integration into the team. Early in the season, I could handle a number of questions relating to my status as a neo-pro, thanks to the staff's advice and experienced riders in the team,” he said.

 

”My good start and especially my stage win in the Vuelta gave me sort of a new status within the team. Prolonging my contract until 2018 is a great opportunity and a guarantee of confidence on the part of Jean-René. The next two seasons will be focused on learning more and I must confirm what I have done until now.

 

”It is a bit early to fix the objectives. We have not seen our schedule, but I have already had some thoughts. I want to work hard in all areas to be stronger in one-week stage races. This year I finished almost all my stage races in the top 15 overall. This is why I am convinced that if I can take another step this winter, I have an interesting role to play. I also want to continue to gain experience from Bryan [Coquard], Thomas [Voeckler] and Sylvain [Chavanel]. And the goal is always to raise the arms.

 

“I love to discover all the races, and I know that when I will discuss it with team managers, they will offer me an ambitious schedule and in line with my characteristics. As for the Tour de France, it is difficult to say in advance: several parameters come into play, but of course it will have an important place in my 2017 season. The Vuelta gave me guarantees and experience for the future, but in cycling you are never safe from injury at the wrong time or health problems.”
