2010 Tour de France Rest Day Comments from Cadel Evans, Carlos Sastre and Thor Hushovd
World champion Cadel Evans (Team BMC Racing), Carlos Sastre and Thor Hushovd (Cervelo TestTeam) are enjoying a day off from the 2010 Tour de France Monday in Morzine. Roadcycling.com has compiled rest day quotes and comments from all three riders.
Describe your Tour so far..
"I won a stage and I have the green jersey, so it's been a fine start to this Tour. If I win the green jersey, I will be even happier. If not, I am still very happy with this Tour because I won the stage on the cobblestones. I lost a few points in some of the sprints, but I think I will be stronger in the final week. I haven't sprinted for nearly two months for my broken collarbone, so I am not in top speed, but I am getting better."
Do you expect to take part in a breakaway in the mountains like you did in last year's Tour?
"That was the first time I tried something like that. I think that was an once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. It would be very hard to repeat it this year. Actually, it's almost impossible."
Well, we expect to see you do it again Thor :-) We need great experiences like that from real men like you!
