Tour de France 2019: "I wanted to let go the horses", confides Thibault Pinot


If Julian Alaphilippe is the big winner of the day after his brilliant victory in the time trial of Pau, his compatriot Thibaut Pinot also realized a beautiful operation.

Among the favorites, only Alaphilippe, Geraint Thomas and Steven Kruijswijk wereted no time on the Frenchman. The leader of the FDJ recovers, in passing, precious seconds on Egan Bernal, Emanuel Buchmann and Enric Mas. He is now in 7th place overall at 2'33 in the yellow jersey.

This is a very good time that you deliver today, how do you analyze it?

THIBAULT PINOT. It's a good time indeed. I felt that I was in shape. I did not have a headset during the race, it was a little destabilizing at first.

Were you mad about what happened in recent days where the focus was on concentration?

It was a bit of both. I was tired of the stages of plain, we gnawed a little brake and I wanted to let go of the horses. Today is the first part of the Pyrenees, the real battle so I answer present.

Marc Madiot explained that the team was going to ride this Saturday with a big finish at the Tourmalet. You confirm ?

Marc has preceded the briefing so I do not know, we have not talked about it yet. We'll see tomorrow how the race is going.
