Keith Oates said:Nothing is impossible, but I would be very suprised if he continues in Yellow once the hills start!!!
After a week in the lead of the Tour de France, Fabian Cancellara is aware that it’s all about to change. With the mountains on the horizon, he has effectively surrendered his yellow jersey but the Swiss CSC rider believes that his heir could indeed be a team-mate.
“I’m in yellow and the sun is shining and I’ve had a good time. Tomorrow is another day and it presents a new objective for me. I want to help my team-mates like Carlos Sastre and Frank Schleck because they’ve done great work for me all week. We’re now exchanging roles: it’ll be Fabian on the front in yellow and those two following… until the climbs when they’ll take charge.
“It was hot today and I expect the next few days will be warmer still. The Tour really begins tomorrow.
“It’s been something special for this week. It’s beautiful but it has taken time to realize what happened. Tomorrow on the climbs, I’ll try to do the best I can but I just want to help my team-mates as long as possible. Today was an easy day. It was windy but after yesterday I think everybody was thinking along the same lines: rest easy before what’s to come.”
