- In the end, I hoped that I wouldn’t lose that much time, but on the other hand, I’m still happy with my performance and the feeling I had on the bike today. I did gain a bit of time on some GC contenders, so I think it’s still going in the right direction. I think I have to be satisfied with today. The power was good, so I can’t complain about my performance this time trial. Now I’m looking forward to the next days. Starting with tomorrow, which will be a special stage because it’s a short and intense stage right after today’s time trial. I think we’ll see that the Tour opens up tomorrow for the first time. I’m curious and I’m looking forward to it, - said Jakob Fuglsang.
The first HC-category summit finish is waiting for the riders tomorrow, as stage 14 will start in Tarbes to finish on the Tourmalet after 177,5 kilometers of racing.
