Tour de France: Team Argos Shimano Race Quotes

Tour de France – Stage 9

Simon Geschke

“Today was a really hard day. I went all out trying to get in the break, but unfortunately it was not enough. I felt strong today, so I decided to go full gas and chase the break. We came pretty close, but in the end I was not able to close the gap. It was a long day. After I was caught by the first group I got dropped and ended up in a group together with John Degenkolb, where we just rode to survive. I have a good feeling about the first week. Tomorrow is a rest day, but I can’t wait until the other stages.”

Rudi Kemna


“Our riders had a good day. They all survived without any problems and finished in time. Marcel was in a group of 50 riders and seemed good on the hills. I see a clear improvement in his climbing skills. Simon and Tom Dumoulin both had a good day as well, with Simon trying to get in the break and Tom staying with the yellow jersey group for a very long time.”
