No cheese for Oroz and co.

Juan José Oroz showed he's back in shape after his Paris-Roubaix tumble by putting in a battling performance in Tuesday's Paris-Camembert.

The lanky veteran was on course for a strong result in the 'Hell of the North' when an inopportune and unlucky crash took him out of the race. In today's French cup race, he went looking for revenge.

After seeing an attack from fellow orange-clad rider Adrián Sáez reeled in, the 32-year-old jumped with approximately 10 clicks to go to avoid a bunch sprint. The French teams, always eager for success on home grounds, weren't about to let the chance of a win slip away, though, and eventually caught him.

Pierrick Fédrigo of FDJ emerged victorious at the end, while Oroz hung on for a solid 13th.

One question ? Where is Jure Kocjan? No races since Paris-Nice. Serebryakov X 2?
