Yvon Ledanois: "Continue to be offensive"

Nairo Quintana was in the breakaway today, and he started to score points for the mountain classification.


“The stage was very hard from the start with multiple attacks at the front of the peloton like every day in order to catch the breakaway. I had to make a lot of effort to get the good break and then I did the sprints to get some points in the best climber classification. I also played the stage, but it was difficult because there were many of us.  I am still progressing day by day and the goal is still to win a stage in this 2021 Tour de France for the team”. 

Yvon Ledanois, Directeur-sportif


“There is inevitably some disappointment because when you manage to put Nairo in the breakaway, you can only imagine another scenario. I would simply say that we were beaten by a stronger rider today, congratulations to Dylan Teuns. Now the 2021 Tour de France is far from over. We have to show our offensive qualities, we have to react. It’s up to us to keep on trying offensive actions, to have this fighting spirit on the next stages in order to get this stage win which is the number one objective of the Arkéa-Samsic team on this Tour.
