Hello Arnaud Coyot, we're the day before Paris-Roubaix, are you in good shape?
Not really, I'm getting back to racing since a long time, I haven't been in a race since one month.

Usually Paris-Roubaix is one of your favourite races, you say that this race is coming back to competition for you, what does that meanexactly for you?
I think I won't finish the race, I'll continue up to the feeding zone and that's OK with me. That's it, this is a year without a result in Paris-Roubaix.

I assume you've done a recon ride anyway? What do you think of the new paved zones?
No no, I haven done anything actually, I didn't do any recon rides, this is really my race to come back to competition and I do this race because I really like it. I'm not here for a result, I don't have any goal, nothing at all actually ...

You've switched from Caisse d'Epargne to Saur-Sojasun. Do you like it in your team?
Yes, I feel really good, it's different than before. They give me the opportunity to go find some results. So far I haven't been able to get any since I haven't been lucky and I had some health problems, but I'll make up for it in the rest of the season!

What is your programme after Paris-Roubaix?
I should do Denain, Tro Bro Léon, Francfort and the 4 Jours de Dunkerque, Dauphiné, French championships and the Tour!
