Jason Tesson is off and running with a win on the second day of his 2023 season.
La Tropicale Amissa Bongo is a multi stage race in Africa where a number of French teams kick off their campaigns.
Loyal domestique Geoffrey Soupe won stage one for Total Energies. A lovely pay off for all his hard work.
The second stage went to a sprint finish which Tesson (from the photos) won with ease to get his maiden win on a new team.
Although I think we all agree the Auber-St Michel kit is better than his new Total Energies one!

Our fan club followed rider, Jason Tesson of Auber 93, finished third in the Paris-Chauny race over the weekend.
Tesson was behind Simone Consonni and Dylan Groenewegen.
Our fan club followed rider is leaving St Michel-Auber 93 for Total Energies.
Our chosen rider Jason Tesson of St Michel Auber 93 has returned to racing after a month off.
Have a look at his fan club page from the top menu to read the news feed and find out more about how he got on.
I have long been toying with the idea of adopting a pro rider to launch their UK fan club.
I haven’t found the right rider until now.
Jason Tesson is a fast and fearless sprinter with the team who have the best kit in the peloton in St Michel/Auber 93 and you can access his UK fan club by clicking here.
He is a bit spiky and really speedy, enjoying mixing it with the bigger sprinters and having beaten them during 2022 already with a couple of big wins.
He isn’t tall for a sprinter and that means when he gets picked up by one of the bigger world tour teams (as is likely this winter) he could even evolve into a classics rider.
His fortunes and career will be followed on the website going forward, so why not click the link above and give him a follow on Strava or another platform.
I have also requested an interview from his team so let’s see if they ever reply !!!
