Adam Yates: «A great day for our team»

interview12.07.2016Stage 10- Escaldes-Engordany / Revel

“The first climb was pretty full gas as always. It's always difficult to start a stage uphill. But we have a great team. Four of guys were at the front of the race at Port d'Envalira. We couldn't get the success we wanted in the first week but now we have it with Michael Matthews. He's pretty quick. When he has an opportunity to win, he usually makes the best of it. He's won everywhere. He was won a lot of bike races. He just hadn't won at the Tour de France yet. Today we knew if we'd get over the first climb, we could try and win the stage. None of the other teams had so many riders at the front. It went all down to the team's plan.”
