"We pay a lot for yesterday's stage"

On a special profile much slower than those borrowed so far, the pace was finally supported in the first few kilometers for the Peugeot 3008 DKR # 306. The Alsatian was also one of the few drivers to compete with Nasser Al- Attiyah and Stéphane Peterhansel who changed the tone clearly Thursday. Sailing in the same minute, the Frenchman was the first shot but still managed to stay 2 minutes. A second puncture then brought him back for more than 5 minutes, before a third cut him completely on his tracks and pushed him over 12 minutes to the finish line …

"It was extremely fragile, we punctured a wheel in the first phase, we broke again in the second stage, then we made a big mistake, but we broke a third wheel, so we had to end up like that. putting our gum on the ground to get here, yet the pace was good, but we actually pay for the dear stage of yesterday, because we went a long way back on such a fragile pace. "

Now, 50 minutes from the leader Nasser Al-Attiyah, the nine-time world champion is in a delicate position where every minute will be important but he can still consider a return of which only he can be the secret. With 6 stages and over 2000 kilometers to go, the road is still long until the finish line in Lima.
