David Gaudu, third in the 6th stage of the Tour: “It’s just a punchy stage…”

David Gaudu (Groupama-FDJ), third in the 6th stage of the Tour de France on Thursday won by Tadej Pogacar on Thursday: “It drove a lot all day. I managed the last climb. I took Roglic’s wheel when he started. There was a strong headwind so the effort that Pogacar made… After that it’s only a punchy stage, it sure gives confidence but for the rest, we must not let go in the head, you have to be present. tomorrow (Friday) we put the cover back on again and this, throughout the Tour. In any case, we are not going to give up. »

Marc Madiot, sports director of Groupama-FDJ at the finish of the 6th stage of the Tour de France: “It’s a great satisfaction (to see David Gaudu in good shape) and that closes a great week of Tour which was difficult to manage with a lot of apprehensions and risks to take, pitfalls to avoid too. We will try to continue on the same tempo: stay together, collective and with the least effort possible. (On the role of Thibaut Pinot tomorrow during the stage of the Planche des Belles Filles) We have a team so we run as a team. The situation is not yet settled enough for a good exit. »
