Through Baptist Hue
The pill is struggling to pass on the side of Jean-Marie Pezet. While its sports director, Antoine Lecarpentier, relativized the non-accession in N1 recorded by the French Cycling Federation (FFC), the speech is different in the mouth of the president of the Team Bricquebec Cotentin (Manche), whom we failed to contact when the verdict was announced.
President Pezet says he is “disappointed”
“I am disappointed because I had planned to complete a season in N1. We had the runnersI’management and the finance to evolve at this level”, asks Jean-Marie Pezet, who has spent “hours and hours” filling out files in good and due form. For the very young septuagenarian, the reasons for refusal expressed by the FFC management controller “are not not justified “.
He evokes two stumbling blocks, one at the level of a grant of the Normandy regionthe other about a contract with a partner “which leaves doubts about the sums to be collected”, according to the FFC. Arguments that Jean-Marie Pezet sharply refutes. That’s why he decided, Wednesday, January 18, 2023to send a letter to appeal the decision.
We will see the result… But, I do it on principle, because we have supporting documents that go in our direction.
From a point of view financiala accession in N1 or one maintenance in N2 would not change anything for the club that will work with a equivalent budget in both divisions, 400,000 euros, ie 150,000 euros more than last year.
