Nacer Bouhanni (Arkéa-Samsic), 4th of the 10th stage of the Tour de France, at the microphone of France Télévisions : “It was very nervous. I almost got trapped in the curbs (15 km from the finish). It was very borderline at the time. Then I stayed warm until the end. It’s a shame that we didn’t manage to organize ourselves in the final. The Deceuninck-Quick Step was right in front of me. Clément Russo made a big effort to place me very high. But the problem is, I caught the wind and used up my cartridges before sprinting. I knew it was done.
Mark Cavendish has a full set, which sets it down perfectly. He smooths his effort well. He did the perfect sprint. Well done to him and his team. I will still give it my all in the next sprint. But we have to be better organized with the guys. If so, I could do something good. “
