Primoz Roglic: "I hope to have good legs again for the queen stage tomorrow"

"It was a good day for us, again in yellow. The start of the stage was very fast and we had to keep our focus on [so the race didn’t get out of control]. There are some big days to come. The team is doing a really good job so far, so we are ready and looking forward to the final days of the Tour de France. Tomorrow is this year’s queen stage. The final climb is the highest point of the route, and its last kilometres are very hard ones, as we have to ride a steep bike path. We’ve reckoned the climb - and I’ve also gone to the other side, the ski jumping hills in Courchevel. With 15 days on the legs, the terrain doesn’t matter that much. Flat, uphill - it’s the same. It’s about having the legs, and I hope to have them and do well tomorrow."
