Warm day in France

Warm day in France

The second stage of the Critérium du Dauphiné was a hard one. Not only the different climbs, but also the heat played a role. “I believe it was about 42 degrees during the stage. Pffff!”

“We had no time to warm up, because it was immediately uphill from the start. We would overcome 3.000 altitude meters. No stage for me, so on the last climb of the day, I let the peloton go and choose my own pace to the top.”

Christopher Froome, yesterday’s winner in the time trial, was the best again. Styby finished fourteen minutes later. “And because the stages start early, we have to get up at 6 am. So I’m going to bed very early. Good night!”
