Vichy – Pélussin, 212km. Hilly.
Despite the strong effort of BAHRAIN MERIDA riders to catch the day’s breakaway, it was impossible to accomplish the mission. Sonny Colbrelli could only win the sprint of the main group and finished 7th: “All in all it is a good 7th place. Too bad that we couldn’t catch the breakaway. I think it is important that we showed a good team work. I have good feelings and let’s see what we can do on the next stages. Unfortunately two guys from Mitchelton – that were helping us in the chase – crashed, otherwise in the final they could be really helpful to our men Pozzovivo, Koren and Cortina, that were working hard at the front of the peloton. Too bad, but we will rebound soon”.
