Blel Kadri: "I let the others fight first"

Most agressive rider.

“We targeted this stage for going in a breakaway and I made it. In the front group, everyone was motivated for taking KOM points. I let the other fight for that, knowing that there was another possibility with taking points in the last hills of the stage. There was an opportunity. I've been close to making it. I miss it for only one point. It's not a drama. I've done what I had to do and I'm rewarded by the most aggressive rider price.”

    The Shark of the Strait, aka Vincenzo Nibali, claimed his first stage victory at the Tour de France as he rode away from the main peloton with 2km to go into stage 2 to Sheffield after surviving all the climbs of West and South Yorkshire. The Italian champion is the new race leader with an advantage of two seconds over Peter Sagan who lost the stage but took the lead in the points classification, which is his main goal this year.
