On the eve of a crucial time trial, Julian Alaphilippe intends to give everything tomorrow in the streets of Pau to stay in Yellow. During the first Pyrenean, the French could quietly control his race, the other favorites do not attack him. "It was not so simple. The final went pretty well. I'm happy to be in yellow at the start of the time. The breakaways were not dangerous today, Van Avermaet was 14 'away. We wanted to maintain a correct gap thinking that we would take our relay but ultimately no. It's not worse. I will continue to give everything to keep this jersey, "said Alaphilippe at the microphone France Télévisions.
