Tour de France – Bryan Coquard: « It’s the hard law of sport »
Seven riders finished late at the end of the 9th stage of the Tour de France raced in terrible conditions between Cluses and Tignes. Among them, we find the two French Arnaud Démare (Groupama-FDJ) and Bryan Coquard (B&B Hotels), who did not manage to escape unlike the other sprinters. Coquard came back on this hard-to-swallow elimination. « I knew the day was going to be difficult but I did not expect such a sad ending. I caught a cold on the descent from the Col des Saisies and I stopped to put on warm clothes. But it woke my fingers up. lower back pain. I fought to the end, I gave everything but that’s how it is. It’s the hard law of sport « , said Coquard in words relayed by his training.
