Cyril Gautier: «Disappointment prevails»

interview22.07.2014Stage 16- Carcassonne / Bagnères-de-Luchon

Most aggressive rider.

“It's a pity to do so much work at the front and not being rewarded by a stage victory. This is my fifth Tour de France and I've always been on the attack as often as I could. I ticked this stage. Thomas [Voeckler] did too. Until 10km to go, it was all perfect for us but Rogers dropped me off. I haven't managed to take his wheel. Disappointment prevails.”

  • Rogers claims first Tour win, Pinot moves up on GC

    After Rafal Majka in the Alps, another of Alberto Contador's domestiques claimed his first stage victory at the Tour de France. Michael Rogers managed to get rid of the Europcar duo formed of Thomas Voeckler and Cyril Gautier to arrive solo in Bagnères-de-Luchon. In the yellow jersey group, Thibaut Pinot took a significant advantage over direct rivals Tejay van Garderen and Romain Bardet while Vincenzo Nibali comfortably retained the overall lead.
