Best young rider Tom-Jelte Slagter (BLA) told letour.fr after receiving the white jersey: “I didn't know what to expect today after being not very healthy last week after the Tour of Belgium. I was on antibiotics before coming to the Dauphiné. But during the race, I didn't feel so bad. A short stage was something good to begin with. In the final climb, I stayed behind Chris Froome and Alberto Contador and in the last kilometer, I did my own sprint. I didn't come to the Dauphiné for riding GC but now that I'm in the white jersey, I'm not going to give it away.”
