Samuel Dumoulin (Ag2R, 5th in the stage): "It's not a disappointment when you look at the quality of the field and the riders with whom I was –– the worlds runner-up Matthews, the world champion Sagan, Boasson-Hagen, Van Avermaet and I was there with them. It was a very fast end to the stage, very hard with riders like Nibali and Rui Costa. I was there in the finale, I sensed Sagan split attempt. And then the guys were real strong. I gave it all I had but I couldn't do any better. I was happy to be there. In the end I told myself to enjoy it because these are rare moments. I had great legs but I'm not going to cry. It was a great breakaway and I was part of it. It's already great."
