Remco Evenepoel took no risks in the sprint: “I didn’t think about the yellow jersey”

Fortieth in the stage on Monday, Remco Evenepoel crossed the line all smiles, just behind Tadej Pogacar, with whom he was joking. As he had indicated, the Brabançon did not take the risk of getting involved in the final race. And he did well since the end of the stage was marked by several falls.Today’s mission is successful, the white jersey calmly indicated in the mixed zone. I especially wanted to finish the stage without injury after seeing some guys fall. It wasn’t a pretty sight…”

Biniam Girmay wins the 3rd stage of the Tour de France in a sprint, Arnaud De Lie 3rd, Richard Carapaz takes the yellow jersey

Now third in the general classification, at the same time as the new yellow jersey Richard Carapaz (14th in the stage and leader of the Tour in cumulative positions), Pogacar and Vingegaard, the Wolfpack rider, who lost his Danish teammate Casper Pedersen (fractured collarbone) in a fall, already had his sights set on the Galibier stage on Tuesday..

“I know it will be an important day, but it’s not the most important of the Tour either. There will be mountains, but it won’t be the most difficult stage. If there are differences, they won’t be big, but we have to be ready. We’ll have to have the legs to respond to any attacks. We’ll see what happens. If a small group arrives in Valloire, I could try my luck in the sprint. But I have the impression that the morning breakaway could go all the way.”
