Martin Elmiger: "I'm happy because I fought all day long"

interview20.07.2014Stage 15- Tallard / Nîmes

Most aggressive rider.

“This is the Tour de France, the biggest race in the world, that's where we have to give everything we have. But none of the two of us really wanted to ride flat out. I didn't have very good legs. It's probably normal. At the end of the second week, everyone is getting tired. But I can be happy with myself because I fought all day long. I didn't think we'd make it to the finish because of the wind that made it difficult. The roundabouts made it technical at the end too. However, Heinrich Haussler's second place is a super result for the team as we haven't been very lucky at the Tour de France so far.”
