I have been involved in professional cycling for 17 years, and for those 17 years cycling has been my life. Some of my best memories and moments happened on my bike, and some of my worst too. Along the road to the top of the sport, many years ago, I chose the wrong path, and I have been very sorry for it ever since.

Rohan did a great job in his first Tour and will not take the start today. Our goal for Rohan, as we said all along, was to bring him to the Tour to give him experience in order to continue to develop his talent. We wanted to get him through the first rest day and we're only a day short of that.
"Ryder and Tom are both ok, so we're happy about that," said Charly Wegelius, Director Sportif. "We'll need to see how Christian does tonight and we'll make the call in the morning on whether or not he can start – of course we -and he- are hopeful that he can but just need to see how things go. The team overall is strong and motivated and our goal is to keep lighting up the race as we roll toward Paris. There is still a lot of racing yet to come and we're proud of how the team is riding."
