Bardet prend la défense de Froome face aux sifflets

Tour de France: Richard Virenque lundi au Chambon-sur-Lignon

Fabio Aru, qui a perdu en cours d'étape son meilleur équipier Jakob Fuglsang (contraint à l'abandon), s'est contenté de contrer les attaques de ses adversaires, principalement dans la dernière ascension (le mur de Péguère) et dans la descente qui a suivi où, tour à tour, les quatre premiers du général ont attaqué (Froome, Bardet, Aru et Uran). Tandis que son leader réservait ses mots pour plus tard, le manager d'AG2R La Mondiale, Vincent Lavenu, soufflait cette confidence, qui sonne à présent comme une évidence: "On ne parle pas trop du maillot jaune pour éviter de mettre la pression sur Romain".

Romain Bardet a décroché une victoire d'étape d'anthologie jeudi à Peyragudes dans les Pyrénées. Maxime Bouet et l'éternel Thomas Voeckler ont bien essayé de décrocher la cinquième en prenant part à l'échappée du jour.

"Je savais que ce serait un Tour très difficile, qui se jouerait sur le fil des secondes et j'ai raison", analyse Froome.

Bardet prend la défense de Froome face aux sifflets

L'équipe de Bardet s'était portée à l'avant, dimanche, dans le col de Peyra Taillade, alors que le Britannique devait chasser pour combler son retard après un changement de roue. On l'a vu dimanche.

Le point important est l'équipe SKY. Neuf ans plus tard, le Français, toujours troisième du général, peut s'inspirer de ce scénario rocambolesque. Vainqueur de deux étapes en 2013 sur le Tour d'Espagne, son premier grand Tour, Warren Barguil a remporté la 13ème étape du Tour et endossé le maillot à pois. Il faut rester humble face à l'évènement et on fera les comptes à la fin. "C'est dommage, il y avait 3, 4, 5 coureurs qui se dessinaient pour le podium et on laisse revenir dans le jeu beaucoup de monde", a déclaré le coureur de l'équipe AG2R La Mondiale. Le seul problème, c'est son équipe. Il s'est souvent retrouvé seul, y compris lorsqu'il portait le maillot jaune, ce qui n'est pas de bon augure surtout sur une étape comme celle de mercredi prochain avec la montée finale de l'Izoard.

A moins d'une semaine de l'arrivée à Paris, le Tour de France 2017 n'est pas joué. Le classement final n'a jamais été aussi indécis à moins d'une semaine de l'arrivée.
