Luis Leon Sanchez retains the yellow jersey for another day. Here’s what he had to say at the finish.
“That was another tough stage but we managed to stay within touching distance and we continued to hold on. Today I was determined to stay at the front of the peloton and managed to stay in the yellow jersey so we’re very happy with our work today.
“I’m expecting tomorrow to be tough again, of course. Paris Nice is always decided in the final few days and we’ve got three stages left now. I’ve got to go out there and try to do my best. Hopefully we can save this jersey, things have gone well so far. The team is feeling strong, I’m feeling strong and I reckon we can come through that test.”
Cousin speaks in his post race interview.
“The objective was to get in the breakaway and take the KOM jersey, so I spent a lot of energy going after the points on the climbs. After that I wasn really thinking about the points on the final climb but I didn hold back on the downhill to the finishing circuit. When I realised the stage victory was possible, I quickly went to get up with the Katusha rider.
“That not how I like to win, I must admit, but I so generous with my efforts with others throughout the season, so I wanted to play things differently to see if it worked. Today it me who lifts his arms. I didn steal it, I rode all day and helped keep the peloton at five minutes for a long time.”
