The stage of the day: second finish line in Mont Aigoual

Mas and Valverde, to compensate for the losses of Orcières in the second mountain finish. Roglic will attempt to unseat Adam Yates.


The 2020 Tour proposes its second goal up on Mont Aigoual (8.3 kilometers at 4%), after previously climbing La Lusette (11.7 km at 7.3%). At Movistar there is a spirit of revenge after the time that Enric Mas (nine seconds) and Alejandro Valverde (21 ") lost compared to the rest of the applicants in the ascent to Orcières-Merlette." I had the legs and the condition, and I'm angry myself for losing these 9 "at the finish line," Mas tweeted. The telephone team posted a statement from Valverde on his website: "This is the start of the race, everyone is very strong and we are close to the best. I have the feeling that little by little we will raise the level, hopefully from Mont Aigoual ".

Mikel Landa, who finished with the other favorites in Orcières, pulls humor to talk about the second mountain stage of this Tour: "Of course I prefer that we face climbs to chronos or days of nervousness. I feel fine, my ribs do not they barely bother after the fall on the way to Nice. I hope to perform on a good line to reach the third week with options ".

For his part, Primoz Roglic yearns for Adam Yates' yellow: "One of our goals is to take the jersey and control the race." With a victory already in the bag, the Slovenian intends to get into pattern mode as soon as possible, although Tom Dumoulin still refuses to give up his quota of candidacy for the title: "In the Jumbo we know what we must do, each one of us has some tasks, and success will depend on its fulfillment. " Yates said that showing off the leadership is "a joy, despite the fact that it happens because of the Alaphilippe penalty." The Ineos, an implacable machine since 2012, seems more fragile this 2020. However, Egan Bernal, current champion, fully trusts his ability ... and that of his teammates: "They will appear when the round is decided, in the Alps." For now, touch Mont Aigoual.
