â€śI had a very good time trial. I couldn't have gone faster. I'm really looking forward to taking my chance and fighting for that podium. What I did today shows that I'm climbing really well at the moment. The team is fully behind me. The podium is so tight. I'll have to see where to take some time back.â€ť

interview21.07.2016Stage 18- Sallanches / MegĂ¨ve
Chris Froome confirmed his absolute superiority as he won the uphill time trial from Sallanches to MegĂ¨ve as he rode 21 seconds faster than specialist Tom Dumoulin. He significantly increased his lead in the overall ranking. With two Alpine stages remaining, Bauke Mollema is at 3.52, Adam Yates at 4.16, Nairo Quintana at 4.37 and Romain Bardet at 4.57.
â€śThere are two hard stages to come but luckily I have quite a lot of points of an advantage. I'll try to win a stage but the priority is the polka dot jersey. I'm tired. I've done Giro and Tour with breakaways and fights for the KOMâ€¦ The legs feel it. Nothing is easy. If my rivals go away tomorrow, I'll try it too.â€ť
