Guiberteau : «Marcel did not have the legs»

interview10.07.2014Stage 6- Arras / Reims

Giant Shimano team director Christian Guiberteau said three-times stage winner Marcel Kittel just did not have the strength to be a contender in today's sprint.

“It was a little difficult for Marcel today. It was not only the consequences of his crash but he just didn't have the legs today. With the echelon, the team struggled to get organised. It was not a mechanical or a puncture like I heard here and there. It was just a bad day. Everybody's tired. Everyday something happens and everybody's worn out.”

  • Greipel crowned in Reims

    Germany's André Greipel claimed stage 6 in Reims - the town where the kings of France were crowned - as his compatriot Marcel Kittel was left down by a mechanical in the last two kilometers. Vincenzo Nibali retained the lead on another rained soaked day with echelons on the roads chosen to remember World War I in the presence of the French president François Hollande.
