"It was a very difficult day, sometimes it had to go full on the climbs. Halfway race we had more than 7 minutes advantage on the peloton,. Then we saved ourselves a little and the last 40 kilometers we had to go full gas. We started riding at full speed and I did not expect the peloton to close the gap so quickly.
In the end I did everything I could for the stage victory, but I was caught in the last 900 meters. In the final phase the wind was at a disadvantage. I did not try to accelerate earlier because of that. If the finish was one kilometer earlier I would have won, but unfortunately that was not the case.
I hope the peloton will feel these efforts. Cousin wins the combativity? Well, he is French. And tonight the Belgians will win!"
Pasqua on his sprint:
"With the headwind it was a difficult. I was a bit blocked in the sprint, but a sixth spot in this field is a great result. Uphill finishes suit me better so I will try my chances over the next days. In Quimper and on Mur de Bretagne I want to show my legs. I don't know the final yet, but I want to be in front!"
