All about the stage

Romain Bardet: "Now I can focus on GC"

interview13.07.2017Stage 12- Pau / Peyragudes

"I was very disappointed to miss out on the stage victory on Sunday but I feel an immense happiness today. I was the first cyclist to ride on this new road [leading to the finish today] when I was here with my parents [in May]. It was a long day on the saddle today, so it was important to mentalize the finish. In May, Peyragudes was a desert but I knew it would be all fired up today. Now that I got the stage win I was looking for since the beginning of the season, I can focus on GC. Building on my past experiences, I wanted to reach the podium earlier than last year. That's my way to improve my cycling."
