I hadn't realised Coquard was so young; nice start to his road career.

There's a seasonable track record for endurance trackies becoming sprinters on the road.

Every omnium I saw him compete in he seemed to win the elimination race, that must be a good grounding for the road..

Agreed, he has greater endurance than most track riders but he is still very young so I don't think he will feature in hard races this year (still he should transition more easily than a Theo Bos for example).
BTW with Bouhanni, Démare and now Coquard, the French have a solid generation of sprinters coming up. Unfortunately that might mean even more bunch sprints at the TDF to keep the home crowd happy.

They still have to beat the Goss, Greipel, Cavendish and Sagans of the world. But yes, they surely have a very good generation coming up, and not just sprinters if we think of Pinot, Elissonde, Jeanesson, Offredo, Soupe, Vichot, Bardet, Simon... They just seem to miss a top level time trialist

Can we have a small races 2013 thread pinned again rather than have race results mixed in with news?
