Florian Vachon of the French based Bretagne-Seche Environment team sprinted from the pack to take first place in the Classic Sud-Ardeche road race beating both Michal Golas (Omega Pharma-Quick Step) and Philippe Gilbert (BMC) in a sprint finish.

With a wild card entry into this year's Tour de France the team were looking to start the season off strong and after 8 mountain passes and 200km of racing the team got their first win. Working with the peleton to pull in an early breakaway the gap was closed 34km before the finish line. From here it was down to Florian and his team mates to work together and get to the line first. "winning today was great for my team. We've started off the season with good performances. Armindo Fonseca (Bretagne-Séché Environnement) had strong legs and could've won the race. It was him who attacked in the last curve with 100m to go. We're doing good." Claimed Vachon after stepping down from the podium.

Keep an eye out for the team and their Spiuk Dharma helmets at international events around the globe and this coming July's Tour de France.
