Luis Le?n S?nchez, whose team Caisse d’Epargne finished the fourth stage of the Tour de France ay place seven 1’29” behind stage winner Team Astana, analyzed the stage of today:
“We realized a great time thanks to the homogeneity of the team and the fact that everybody did his part of the job. We lost only Arnaud Coyot after 17 kilometers which allowed us to finish with eight men. I believe that we must be very satisfied with what we were able to achieve today. We were the first team to start so that we had no time reference and that was of course not easy.
From a more personal point of view, after I was a little bit disappointed in the first stages because I noticed the fact that I did no trace for a long time I am beginning to get the rhythm of the race in my legs. It is longer that I thought but I hope to reach my best level in the second week of the Tour.
I know that I am able to do much better and I am now waiting for the mountain stages to be in front with the best riders.”
