Peter Sagan: "I had in mind to also make the top 10..."

interview14.07.2013Stage 15- Givors / Mont Ventoux

The rider in the green jersey was part of the 10 man break that went at 30km. He was caught by the peloton at the foot of the final climb but not before doing a wheelie to «make a nice photo»...

“Today I went in the breakaway in order to get some points but I had in mind to also make the top 10 on the Mont Ventoux – it would have been something special! Unfortunately some riders were sleeping and when they woke up we were gone and they chased us. They didn't catch us and now I don't understand the tactic of those directeurs sportifs who ask their riders to pace the bunch after they didn't manage to catch us; it makes no sense.

“I have spent a lot of energy today. I need a good rest day. The third week is going to be very hard. Now I'm thinking of surviving anyway I can.

“I'm very happy that I took some important points and that I put on a show when we got caught by the bunch; this wheelie that I did was for fun, it's for the people – it makes a nice photo, no? I was doing this while the bunch was riding flat-out...”
