‘Small milestones and slowly believing in myself’ – Jorgenson takes dream Paris-Nice title

Not since 2006 has a rider from the USA taken the overall victory at Paris-Nice until Matteo Jorgenson (Visma-Lease a Bike) exceeded his own expectations and did just that after a stunning day of racing on stage 8.

The 24-year-old American was every bit stage winner Remco Evenepoel’s (Soudal-QuickStep) equal on each of the five climbs that lined the 109km route around Nice. Even three stinging attacks on the Côte de Peille from the former World Champion couldn’t shake the resolute Visma-Lease a Bike man.
