Oliver Naesen: "Putting the team in a positive dynamic

"It was a very hard day. I knew I was in a strong group. I needed a little success. It's not a victory, not even a podium, but it was important to put the team in a positive dynamic. I believed in it until the red light. With the group of chasers, we had to keep up the momentum. You never know, if the two men in front were looking at each other, it could have turned out in our favor. "[/su_quote] [su_row][su_column size="1/2"][/su_column] [su_quote cite="Romain Bardet"]

Romain Bardet: "A lot of memories came back".

"I've been cycling for nineteen years. It's always good to get back to your roots and a lot of memories have come back. Today I received a lot of support and that will help me for the rest of the Tour. I tried to seize an opportunity on roads I know well. Unfortunately, I found myself upwind. I am satisfied with my behavior and that of the team. This is how I want to approach the race. The beginning of the Tour was not good but we will fight until the end. We still hope to play the leading roles."[/su_quote]
