Arnaud Démare: "It was more stressful than a sprint"

interview11.06.2017Stage 8- Albertville / Plateau de Solaison

“A day like today is even more stressful than a sprint because we can mess up everything being out of the time cut. I could have condemned my whole team if I didn't make it. Every time we heard “attaque de Valverde” through the radio, we knew that we'd had to speed up even more. It was terrible. The last climb was very steep and very hard for someone whose weight is 80kg. But they were all useful efforts. The green jersey and the necessary hard work before the Tour de France were my motivation factors today.”
