Michael Schär: “Head wind at the end condemned me”

July 20 th 2018 - 19:02

 

I gave it all. In the morning we had a plan to go in a break. We went as long as possible. I was happy to be at the front with Thomas De Gendt who is a breakaway specialist but it didn’t help us because the bunch didn’t give us any time. It was a maximum of two minutes. I tried it all at the end. I was hoping for a lot of corners in the city. It didn’t work out because there were massive roads towards the city with a lot of head wind.
