Bryan Coquard: "Disappointed and satisfied all the same"

interview20.07.2014Stage 15- Tallard / Nîmes

Another fine finishing for Bryan Coquard (EUC), who was 6th in Nimes, but the disappointment of not having quite been a contender.

"Kevin (Reza) led me out very well. I came back at the 500 metres next to the Omega Pharma Quick Step and I tried to take Renshaw's wheel, and then Greipel pushed me around a little. Finally I finished 6th. I'm not disappointed because it was a tough day with the rain. I'm a little bit disappointed for Kevin, who did a great job. With only two of us, it's difficult to fight with the others. I'm satisfied but disappointed all the same.
It was close. We saw them in the last stretch. Then I must admit I was totally focused on Kevin's wheel. I hope I'm going to go through the mountain alright. I'm not going to say that the hardest part has been done. I still need to grind my teeth."

    Alexander Kristoff (Katusha) claimed his second stage win in Nîmes after the peloton caught the two courageous breakaway riders in a thrilling finale. Near the antique Arenas, the Norwegian triumphed like a gladiator as the outcome was cruel for Jack Bauer and Martin Elmiger who escaped from the start of the 222-km long stage and got caught in the last 50 metres!
