"A big part of sprinting is rubbing shoulders. I have to see it, I don't know what happened, but when did sprinting get soft? Today this helps me, but what's next? I want to win the jersey fair, on the road, fighting, not because someone gets points deducted."
- Sam Bennett
"This costs me a lot of points, but I still have not abandoned the fight for the green jersey. We are half-way through the Tour de France. There are some opportunities still to take the green jersey back."
"I didn't think it was dangerous."
- Peter Sagan.
