It's also a victory of the team. We really had a plan to stay out for the trouble all the time and it really worked out really well. So many people said he's done, he's over, he will never come back.
I am so happy to show all these guys who didn't believe me that I am still there, I am still alive. I think that's also what I took out of this accident: I was fighting my way back, and I am so proud.

It's a bike race and it goes on so, I tried to do my best for the whole team and keep the jersey. The closer we got to the finish, the more I started believing and this result is a big disappointment for me.
Maybe the race wasn't long enough for me really. I have a good sprint after six hours and today it was only 3 hours 30 minutes. I tried to do my own sprint instead of waiting for him [Degenkolb] but next time, I will try again and try to beat him.
I was really aiming for that win in yellow and it didn't happen but that's how it goes. Overall, I kept the jersey and made a great race out of the stage and this is also something.
I was really happy with my shape and it's been special to wear the yellow jersey. I think we did a very good job.

Cyclingnews - Dan Martin loses time in late crash; Greipel, Gaviria relegated. We have worked really hard for this.
It was about fighting for a good position all day. I have to thank the team for their trust and support. This would have never been possible without my teammates.
Our policy is to develop and improve young talents. All resources and expertise are put into this and this is now paying off.
We pay attention to all kind of details, from training to nutrition to equipment. Everyone within this team contributes to this.
It was a long day and it was a little bit more relaxed but with a really fast final. I am happy I could take those three extra seconds in the bonus sprint.
It was an open sprint with nobody in front so it was good to give it a try and take some seconds to make sure I am safe for the next stage.
Now, I can probably keep the jersey to Roubaix and overall it's been a nice week so far. Tomorrow is going to be flat but shorter than today and I think it is going to have the same outcome.
I feel like I can focus on Sunday and try to be up there and we will see what happens. My back's against the wall the whole time, but I'll keep trying.

He is good at picking the right moment. I think if you win a stage like this after attacking from that point then you are the strongest guy.
We tried to do a good job and Richie tried to set a good tempo for himself and to try and take some seconds over the rest of the contenders.
I just hung in there as well as possible to maybe try to sprint but in the end, I had no power anymore. It was a super hard final climb and the tempo never slowed down.
But I am happy that I could stay up there and only a few guys could hold the tempo on the climb. Overall, it was a good day and I have another day in yellow to look forward to.
I was really relaxed all day and I was really looking forward to having a crack. Stage 5 finish line quotes.
Sagan wins stage 5 in Quimper. Cyclingnews - Green jersey tops Colbrelli in drag race sprint. Phil [Gilbert] went early and he is up there on the GC so I couldn't let him go and I had to ride by myself.
Then, I think I went a bit too early on the sprint. I thought the corner was closer to the finish and that's the thing that went wrong I think.
However, we gave it a try and we also didn't lose any time with Richie. The team did a perfect job to put us into position in the final. It was a really demanding day for a lot of guys and I think the team did a great job all day.
We spent a lot of energy but I think on these kind of days you can lose more time than on a mountain stage so it's better to do that. I think we did great today so we will see how it goes tomorrow.

Stage 3 finish line quotes. Cyclingnews - Greg Van Avermaet moves into yellow jersey. I think everybody did a good time trial and we were all working well together.
We knew that Team Sky would be the team to beat and we also knew that it would be close. We worked together and that's what team time trials are about.
We stayed together with eight guys for a long time and on this parcours, that was the key to winning the race. It was a goal to get yellow in the first week.
I have worn it one time already and it was an incredible feeling so, I am pretty happy to be in this position for a second time. I will enjoy it tomorrow because for any rider it is a special feeling.
I want to thank my teammates as without them, it wouldn't have happened. Victory in the team time trial is one of the best feelings.
The prize is shared between all of the team. Everybody works hard, everybody does their homework and prepares well for day's like this and that means that the win is shared by everyone.
For me, that is why day's like this are special. Chavanel earns Zwift Rider of the Day. Cyclingnews - Frenchman earns most combative rider award after day-long breakaway.
