Tour de France - Van Keirsbulck colours day [04-07-17 22:13 by staff GoNBike.com] 

TDF #4 : Van Keirsbulck colours day

In the fourth stage of Tour de France Guillaume Van Keirsbulck brought a spectacle. At kilometer 0 Van Keirsbulck went solo in the offensive, and for 191 kilometers he fought alone against the wind and the chasing peloton. He was logically chosen as the most combative rider of the day, and at 16 kilometers from the line he was caught by the chasing peloton. The victory went to Arnaud Démare. Pieter Vanspeybrouck finished 13th. Guillaume Martin, Dion Smith and Andrea Pasqualon crashed, fortunately without serious injuries.

Guillaume Van Keirsbulck:

"I said this morning that I wanted to be part of the breakaway, and that was the case. Hilaire told me to continue my efforts, and that others would join me in the lead. But I have not seen anyone all day, that was not ideal!"

"The wind was not ideal. I was waiting for the last climb to give full gas and then I did not have much energy anymore. I would rather have had some company, but it is the 1st Tour for Wanty Groupe Gobert so that's great. I'm going to sleep well this night! I want to try again later, but now I'll do some slightly less intensive stages. "
