Geoffrey Bouchard (AG2R La Mondiale) : “I took as many points as I could today. We knew it would be hard to resist Astana in the finale so we had to score as much as possible before the favorites came back. It’s done, and I also finish up there, so it’s not bad. I’ve never done a third week of racing so I’m going without too much pressure. I can’t say if it will work or not. It’s very much a mental thing. You need to be fresh in the morning in the bus. It’s not always easy, but I want to ride my bike and I enjoy it. I’me super motivated for this kind of stages. The jersey is almost won. I managed to put some distance between me and my main rivals so it’s a good thing.”
