Jason Tesson quickly got used to Gabonese roads. After his first victory on Tuesday in Oyem in the north of the country, it won again on Wednesday further south, in Mouila, in the province of Ngounié, which the peloton had joined yesterday by plane. The 25-year-old Angevin once again showed his sprinting qualities thanks to a lot of work from the TotalEnergies team where everyone put themselves at his service while several of his teammates like Lorrenzo Manzin, Emilien Jeannière and Geoffrey Soupe could claim the same privileges. The latter, who wore the yellow jersey after his victory on the first day at Bitam, had to leave it to Jason Tesson thanks to the game of bonuses.
“It’s good that the guys in the team can understand that they don’t work for nothing, that I deserve their trust”
For his debut under the colors of the Vendée team, Tesson has already scored points with Jean-René Bernaudeau present in Gabon to convince him that he was not mistaken in recovering him this winter after his two years spent with Saint-Michel – Auber 93 (in 3rd division). “But it’s also important to shine right away, with the guys in the teamhe explained after the arrival. It’s good that they can understand that they don’t work for nothing, that I deserve their trust. With this yellow jersey on his shoulders, Jason Tesson knows that it is a new status that he will now have to assume until the arrival Sunday in Libreville.
