Tour de France. Stage 14. Fabio Aru steps down to second in overall

A very fast and tough final in Rodez produced some changes in the general classification of the Tour de France. After stage 14 (Blagnac – Rodez, 181,5 km) Fabio Aru step down to second place in the overall classification, while Chris Froome took again the yellow jersey and became the Tour leader.

For the moment 18 seconds separate Froome and Astana leader. Third place holds French rider Romain Bardet, 23 seconds behind the GC leader.

- There was a really high speed in the final, and the peloton started to split in parts. I did not have the best position, was a bit far behind. I tried my best to come in front at the last kilometer, but it did not work. So, it happens. Of course, I’d prefer to keep the leaderships, but there is no any big tragedy in it. Tomorrow is a very tough stage and also we still have a full third week with a lot of mountains. I want to recover as well as possible today and tomorrow I will keep on fighting. This Tour is still open, everything is possible, - said Fabio Aru.

Australian Michael Matthews won the stage in a powerful sprint ahead of Olympic champion Greg Van Avermaet and Norwegian rider Edvald Boasson Hagen. Fabio Aru finished 30th, 25 seconds behind the winner.

Tomorrow, the 15th stage of the race will end the second week of the Tour de France. It will be a mountain stage from Laissac-Sévérac l’Église to Le Puy-en-Velay of 189,5 km with 4 climbs in the distance.
