"I had been feeling good lately and today I took time off of my rivals, that's all I wanted. It was a very challenging, very technical course but for me it was OK. If you crash in the recon, it doesn't make you very confident for the real race so definitely he (Froome) lost a bit more time in his performance than he would normally do and it was very unfortunate for him. I didn't expect to take so much time off him."
