“Taking that into consideration, our riders were in good form and they showed very good teamwork. In the tough, mountain stages they were in the front during big parts of the stages."

“We’ve had a good Dauphiné keeping in mind the very high level here”, assesses DS Bruno Cenghialta after the concluding stage of Critérium du Dauphiné, where Kiserlovski finished 14th in the GC.
Tinkoff-Saxo had Bruno Pires in the long breakaway of the final stage 8, while Kiserlovski and Poljanski equally showed good shape. That’s the overall verdict of team sports director Patxi Vila, who says:
"We had a plan to be in the breakaway, which got away almost at the start of the race with 12-13 riders, with Bruno Pires in it. Tony Martin was also in it and soon staged a solo attack, leaving a group of 9 riders behind him with Pires still there. They pulled very hard and had always 3'00" to 3'30" advantage. However, behind them the group was fighting a war and Sky pulled hard. They wanted to bridge the gap, win and take the bonus seconds”, comments Bruno Cenghialta and adds:
“They executed that plan and brought Froome to the last climb and then attacked Van Garderen, taking the stage and the race. Our riders performed very well today, especially Pires who worked very hard in the breakaway. Kiserlovski and Poljanski were also in good form and stayed with the group until the last 2-3km”.

After eight stages and 1214 kilometers with four days in the mountains in the second part of the race, Vila notes that he is pleased with the team effort.
“Overall, I can say that nearly all our riders had a good Critérium de Dauphiné. Of course, Jesper Hansen had to abandon after crashing on the fifth stage, so we can't assess his overall performance but the rest of the squad raced well. We should always keep in mind that the level in the Dauphiné was extremely high, the favorites were gearing up for the Tour de France and the best riders were here”, explains Bruno Cenghialta before concluding:
“Taking that into consideration, our riders were in good form and they showed very good teamwork. In the tough, mountain stages they were in the front during big parts of the stages. Overall, our squad had a good race against some of our toughest competitors”.
