“At 6 km to the finish of the Grand Colombier climb Fabio asked me to push on the pedals to increase the speed and see what would have happened – explained Diego Rosa – we did it because the Team Sky was doing a rythm too slow and regular… In the following descent we have got Nibali and Kangert, who were part of the escape, and then we kept the high rythm until the Aru's attack on the last climb…”.
Here is the summary of day where Diego Rosa demonstrated to be a really important men of the Kazakh Team at Tour de France: “We all feel good inside the Team and today we had to make clear that on our terrain we can say our word, let’s go to the Alps…”.
The captain, Fabio Aru, on his side looked positive while cooling down after the end of the stage: “I think we did pretty good today, demonstrating everyone that we are not satisfied my actual position in the GC – explained the Italian – we have tried to make some selection today and we will try in the next stages, the Tour de France will end in Paris and we will do our best until the end!”
Today stage has been won by the Colombian Jarlinson Pantano, who have beaten the Polish Rafal Majka in a two men sprint. The British Christopher Froome has kept the Yellow Jersey.
Tomorrow, 16 th stage from Moirans-en-Montagne to Berne, 209 km, quite suitable for the sprinters but characterized by some hills even very close to finish line.
