Pierre Latour: “My priority is to help Romain Bardet”

July 20 th 2018 - 18:40

 

It was a pleasure to start on a slower mode than the previous days. There’s been a bit stress towards the end because of the wind in the Rhône valley but it was mostly a three-quarter head wind so there was no split in the peloton. It’ll be more nervous tomorrow. A breakaway can succeed in Mende again. The white jersey isn’t a goal. My priority is to help Romain [Bardet]. If I stay with him close enough to the end of the stages, I’ll keep it. It’s not a fight with Guillaume Martin. Egan Bernal is also reducing the gap quickly.
