Vuelta a Espana (10th stage) Pierre Latour 6th

PIERRE LATOUR : "The first time trial I felt right in for a long time"

"I recovered well during the rest day. From the first climb, I saw that my legs were responding well so I didn’t have to question myself. This type of course where you are always on the edge is more to my advantage than a really flat course which is more for the rouleurs. This is the first time in a long time that. I felt right in a time trial, and that’s nice. This is a discipline that I love. I often train with the time trial bike at home in the Rhone Valley, and that's mainly why I'm not doing too badly now. I am no longer well placed in the general classification. My form is still too irregular for that. Now, I want to get into a breakaway to try to win a stage."PIERRE LATOUR
