Adam Yates: «I kind of faded but I'm satisfied»

interview21.07.2016Stage 18- Sallanches / Megève

“Today wasn't my best performance but it was also not too bad. It's pretty normal to be tired, I suppose. The time trial was ok, nothing special but nothing bad. I rode flat out to the first check point and then I kind of faded. But I'm satisfied. I'm still on the podium. But there are a lot of guys to watch and make sure they're not taking any time. Richie [Porte] is the strongest, he's the main guy to get to the podium. With two days to go, I'll take every stage as it comes and try not to lose any second.”

  • Chris Froome time trials to second stage victory

    Chris Froome confirmed his absolute superiority as he won the uphill time trial from Sallanches to Megève as he rode 21 seconds faster than specialist Tom Dumoulin.
