Michal Kwiatkowski: "I'll not give up"

interview10.07.2013Stage 11- Avranches / Mont-Saint-Michel

The Polish champion came to his first Tour de France to learn but Michal Kwiatkowski is proving to be the all-round revelation of the 100th edition. He can climb, sprint and time trial... his fifth place in Mont-Saint-Michel puts him back in the white jersey...

“I'm very happy about my performance but I actually did very well in every TT I've done this year so I keep on going that way. I'm pleased with the result of today and happy for Tony [Martin, his team-mate at Omega Pharma-Quickstep] and to have the white jersey back.
“The third week is such a hard one for climbers and I think Nairo [Quintana] is such a good climber who will be hard to beat all the way to Paris but I'll not give up and I'll try to improve.”
