Michael Schär : « We rode in beautiful harmony»
« I am happy with this award. The four breakaway riders deserved it because we rode in wonderful harmony, and we all worked well together. Maybe if the fifth rider had stayed with us, we could have gone further and raced for the win because we were only caught five kilometers from the finish line. After our woes during the first stage, I hope that this will put the whole team going in the right direction and that we will still be able to make an impact. »Michael

Bob Jungels operated on
Bob Jungels underwent two lower limb surgeries last week to treat the external iliac endofibrosis that prevented him from competing in the Tour de France.
“It’s always a shame to be home and not participate in the races, but I’m glad we identified the reason for the problem that had crippled me for a long time. I know that I will be inactive for at least eight weeks and that it will be necessary to be patient because it will be a long road. I’m in good spirits and I’m motivated. I will do everything to find my best sensations and prove that I have not lost my qualities. I look to the future. I would like to thank Drs Corten, Stocks and Lauwers who performed the surgeries,” Bob Jungels said.
