Chris Froome: "I kept an eye on Quintana"

interview12.07.2016Stage 10- Escaldes-Engordany / Revel

"It was a pretty strange start. Obviously for us, there was a lot of work to do. We were happy with the breakaways that were going but at some stage, Valverde attacked so we had to neutralize that. We were not able to see much in the downhill of Envalira due to the fog. It was a bit like at the Giro a few years ago when Quintana slipped up the front so I was keeping an eye on him to make sure he wouldn't do the same again. Then it was a good day to keep off. I could ride with not much to worry about. It was never a consideration to let the jersey go, even though Adam Yates is very close on GC. Especially the way the team is riding, we're happy to have the jersey on our shoulders and the responsibility of the race. It's always difficult to plan these kinds of stages between the mountains and tomorrow will be something similar. I'm glad I managed to take a good rest and catch some sleep yesterday. I'm already focused on the Ventoux on Thursday and the time trial on Friday.”
