Thibaut Pinot: "I like time trials like this one"

interview04.07.2015Stage 1- Utrecht / Utrecht

It was a nice course, not too curvy, pretty straight. I like that. I'm not a bad time trialist. In the straight time trials when power speaks for itself and I've got good legs, I know that I'll do well. One day I'd like to do the French championship for time trial if it's on a nice course with serious hills. My advantage over the other favorites is nothing compare to what's coming up in the next three weeks. It's anecdotal. However, it's important to be reassured. I was looking forward to the race to begin. Two days at the hotel, it's not what I prefer.

He outclassed the three favorites Tony Martin, Fabian Cancellara and Tom Dumoulin and rode the fastest individual time trial ever at the Tour de France.
