Greg Van Avermaet: "I gave it my best shot
"There was a nice group of eight riders breakaways and it could have gone far but in the end, not everyone was interested in riding. So I went alone, fortunately joined by Kluge. We worked well together. I gave it my best shot to go as far as possible. For a long time we had a 40-second lead but with the peloton chasing us and the sprinters determined to fight it out before the more difficult stages, it wasn't possible. I'm glad I was able to get on the podium for the fighting spirit award."[/su_quote]
After Michaël Schär at the end of the third stage, Greg Van Avermaet is the second rider from the AG2R CITROËN team to receive the fighting spirit award since the start of the Tour de France.
