Finally rest day in the Tour!

Finally rest day in the Tour!

In the Tour de France the riders have their first restday today. Zdenek did well so far. “I am happy. I was always there where I needed to be, and where the team wanted me. And we won three stages.”

“We won three times with our sprinter Marcel Kittel. And we got a second place with Daniel Martin as well. He is our man for the classification. Pity he crashed yesterday, otherwise he could have done a great job.”

“I didn’t do a bad either. I was in the early breakaway. But on the HC climb La Binche, I had to let go the group, even though I was fighting hard to keep their pace. On the Colombier the favorites passed me and I tried to hang on, to help Daniel, but ouch, they went hard…”

“There is one thing I feel really bad about. It was my fault the Norwegian Vegard Stake Laengen crashed. I was braking in to a corner, but I just went straight and hit him. I apologized to him for that, but I felt shit all day from that. Luckily nothing happened to him.”

“Today I will enjoy the rest of the restday. What we will do? Hopefully not so much. Maybe some easy training and I hope I can stay the rest of the day in bed.”
