“I’m not really disappointed. I know that after a stage like this one, I’m not the fastest in the bunch. I think I did quite a good sprint. I didn’t feel very good after the hard stage we had yesterday. My legs were hurting a little bit. Let’s hope tomorrow will be better. For someone like me coming from mountain biking efforts, the climb is better than a long one but we’ll see how the climbers attack. Normally it should be a little bit too hard for me. Maybe if I have a super good day, I can follow them.”
