Wout van Aert sees leader Roglic getting closer to the final win: “This doesn’t lie” | Tour

“It was a good day”, Wout van Aert sums it up. “The most important thing for us was to defend our position. If you can then take extra time, that is even better. This is not: if you can take the lead here, you are better.”

“I myself suffered a lot on the Madeleine. I have the most trouble when it goes uphill immediately after the flat. At the beginning of the Col de la Loze I had a better feeling.”

“Bahrain took over, so I didn’t have to do more than follow. But you have to be there, because something can always happen. But I’m certainly satisfied.”

“Every day we get a step closer with the yellow to Paris. Tomorrow is also very tough, but the course is not suitable for doing anything. We will ride defensively and then man to man at La Planche des Belles Filles.”

Does Van Aert not take into account day winner Lopez? “He indeed seems to get through, but I don’t think he will be much shorter in the time trial at Roglic. Pogacar remains the biggest competitor.”

Van Aert does not seem to get any wear in the 3rd week either. Isn’t he secretly dreaming of winning the time trial at La Planche des Belles Filles? “We still have to look at that. Until then, the focus is on the yellow. But from La Planche I can’t do much for Roglic anymore.”

“We have to make a plan that will bring me to the World Cup in the best form. Should I go full steam ahead or not this weekend? We still have to look at that.”
