Thibaut Pinot: "The emotions I was looking for"

July 20 th 2019 - 18:54

"Our tactic was planned before the race. That’s why we got our time trial specialists to pull the bunch and maintain the gap under three minutes. I clearly wanted the stage win and nothing else. It was out of question to make a show. What we didn’t plan was Movistar to make the race hard in the Soulor and that hurt. David Gaudu’s attack was planned as well. I had a strong desire to win. My goal now is to make the top 3 in Paris again."
