Pierre Latour: "Unfortunately, I missed out on the victory"

July 24 th 2018 - 18:47

 

It took a very long time for the breakaway to take shape. There were big waves in the bunch and big groups going clear. I’ve seen Guillaume [Martin] riding off after the last wave and I went too. Silvan [Dillier] was up there to help Romain [Bardet] later on and Mathias [Frank] helped me in the valley before the last climb. Unfortunately, I didn’t manage to stay up front to race for the stage victory.
