2023 CALL FOR "CYCLE CITY" LABEL NOW OPEN

Wout van Aert: "It's my fault, I should have waited more in Christophe's wheel"

"It has been such a great day to be in yellow. In general, Denmark has been excellent because it has been amazing to experience the warm welcome that the public has given us. Now I’m proud to take this yellow jersey into France. As for today’s sprint, I am bit angry at myself because of the missed opportunity. The last corner was a bit sharper than expected. Christophe [Laporte] and I took the inner side, and because of that we didn’t lose too much speed and came out in perfect position for the sprint. Then I started my effort a bit early, without fully using Christophe’s help. I should have waited more behind his wheel. It was messy, yeah, but every sprint is. I will try to win pretty much every day on this Tour de France. These two days we have had two regular sprints. From now on the stages will be harder, and that’s good for me. I’m looking forward to the cobbled stage, as it suits me quite well. The Tour de France has just begun."
