Romain Bardet: "Keep the bright side of things"

interview27.07.2014Stage 21- Évry / Paris Champs-Élysées

Sixth overall, only two seconds behind American Tejay Van Garderen, Romain Bardet vowed to see the bright side of a fine Tour de France for him and his AG2R-La Mondiale team.

"Of course, I keep the bright side of things, the rest are the ups and downs of the race, there are worst things… Second and 6th, we would have signed on the dotted line at the start in Leeds. What I regret is the little bit of hard luck, the puncture on the TT without which I would have kept my 5th place. But it's only my second Tour de France, I lack a little bit of experience at times. But 6th is early a great performance. There is really a big generation in France. With Thibaut, we're going to battle it out in the years to come, but there is also a good international opposition. To ride that fast and that young at such level, it's good for the future. Now we're going to spend a good evening together with the team and the family. We achieved a great collective performance in the first place."  

  • Kittel doubles up, Nibali wins the Tour

    Vincenzo Nibali is the winner of the 101st Tour de France, a race he led for eighteen days out of twenty-one. It's also the big return of French riders on the final podium with Jean-Christophe Péraud and Thibaut Pinot second and third respectively. The last stage on the Champs-Elysées went to Marcel Kittel (Giant-Shimano) just like last year. The German outsprinted Alexander Kristoff in a spectacular final sprint on the Champs-Elysées.
