-I was not so bad, everyone else is also starting to feel the legs. I was just hanging on there and once they started attacking, I knew I had to manage myself instead of exploding like yesterday happened. Today I had to manage the way I did the final climb, it was damage control all the time. I dropped one time and I came back again, but after a second attack at the front I dropped again but I just kept fighting. It was nice to show that yesterday was an incident. It’s not over yet, we will fight till Paris. – Jakob Fuglsang.
- I was able to help Jakob Fuglsang, I tried to do so as much as possible. I was calculating my energy, I knew if got dropped on the penultimate climb, that I could return in the group at the descent. So, before the Alpe d’Huez I gave Jakob some bottles and gels and wished him good luck. He can be satisfied the way he climbed to the finish today. – Tanel Kangert.
