Yates: “Zero cooperation”

September 9 th 2018 - 19:02

Simon Yates (Mitchelton-Scott): “It was a very strong attack from Pinot. He came from behind with a lot of power, a lot of speed. I can only congratulate him, it was a great move. It was difficult in the last climb. There was zero cooperation (with Quintana and Lopez) so it was difficult to do anything. There was a little bit of headwind as well so if you opened a gap it was hard to maintain. So nothing really happened in the end. I feel good and if I can hold the same form and the same legs I’ll be very happy. I’m looking forward to the rest day and then we’ll move on to the time-trial and the rest of it. The gaps are still very small and the TT could be the key.”
