Tom Dumoulin: "I knew it would be hard"

interview21.07.2016Stage 18- Sallanches / Megève

Tom Dumoulin (Giant-Alpecin): “I'm pretty satisfied but I think I didn't ride my very best time trial. Froome showed he was simply the best. In the very steep part in the beginning I felt good and performing well and then I lost lots of energy in the intermediate section. I spent a long time in the hot seat but I expected it would be very hard. I knew it would be close.”

  • 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. 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.
