Silence-Lotto reactions after stage 7 of Tour de France

As planned, Jurgen Van Den Broeck was with the very attack with 23 other riders on the way out of of Barcelona. But as Popovych, high in the classification was there, the peloton reacted promptly. An then started the small group which made it to the finish, but without Jurgen. In the final, he was with the top guns at Arcalis.

"I was feeling good, but as Contador countered, I was not good enough. I wanted to launch Cadel, but it did not succeed."

Cadel Evans did not know if he had to be satisfied or not. "I was feeling well, but that damned head wind made attacks from behind impossible. And as soon as Jurgen attacked, Contador countered. Must be "pretty good", I have never seen him climbing that well at Dauphin?."

Kl?den. Popovych. Zubeldia finished several km after the last ascent. This will make time differences very hard to achieve .

Matthew Lloyd  crashed on the way, and could thus not help at Arcalis as he had planned. "I have no injury, but I had not legs any more. I could follow, but nothing more".

Greg Van Avermaet: I was never well. Even on the first col. Up to Arcalis, I have worked for the team, and then I have climbed it at my rhythm."
