Romain Bardet: «I fight against all my adversaries, not only Pinot»

interview19.07.2014Stage 14- Grenoble / Risoul

Best young rider.

“We've remained cautious in the first two weeks but today we've felt there was an opportunity for something big. We made the race hard. It hasn't worked on the way up to the col d'Izoard but later we managed to regain some time. I didn't attack in the downhill thinking of Thibaut Pinot. I fight against all my adversaries. I'm also competing against Valverde, Van Garderen, etc. I didn't feel that Valverde was going to crack but he suddenly put himself aside. Since the beginning of the Tour, today is the day I've enjoyed the most. Last year I was stronger in the third week, I hope it's going to be the same again.”
