Results from today's Stage in France


Team Garmin-Transitions comments regarding today's stage

Matt White, Director Sportif

Today was the first real selection of the Tour de France contenders.  Its safe to say that Ryder has done some of the rides of his life here, and today was no exception.   Losing Christian was obviously a negative for the team, but it provided Ryder with an opportunity to step up into a GC role – and he’s done it. I’m really proud of what he’s accomplished here already and for now, we’ll keep taking it day by day.

Ryder Hesjedal

I’m happy with my ride today. It was another hard, hot day, but the team rode great. As much as I wanted to stay with the Contador group, I knew my limits on the last climb. I lost it a little and after that I decided to ride tempo. 14th on the stage and 6th overall is beyond what I ever expected, so I’m happy. I’m looking forward the rest day and getting at it again next week. Thanks to the team here, Christian at home and all the fans for all the support.
