Greg Van Avermaet: "A good sign
"It was a difficult day with a very tough course. In the final, we were racing to win with Benoît (Cosnefroy) and we didn't miss much. This mistake of deviation in the last moments is perhaps the key moment of the race because we had started with two and it was not easy to restart and remobilize for the sprint. It's a pity to come so close to a victory but I'm still very happy with the result. The feeling is better every day since the Tour of Wallonia (July 23-27) and I am very motivated to get good results. It's a good sign to be at the front on a stage like today's. We'll see if there's a chance to turn the general classification around tomorrow but Alex Aranburu looks strong and he has a good speed point."[/su_quote]
