By Gregor Brown in Le Grand-Bornand
Yaroslav Popovych finished comfortably with Discovery Channel team leaders Spaniard Alberto Contador and American Levi Leipheimer in stage seven to Le Grand Bornand. The Ukrainian is dedicated to the duo but will have his freedom when the time is right.
"We will try to remain calm," the 27 year-old commented to Cyclingnews. "There are still a lot of mountain stages to come and attacks to try." He believed that Saturday's stage was one of testing. "It was a day to see how we are doing.
"I think the next days will be good for Levi and Contador, and we will be working for these two team leaders." 'Popo' said the team has given him space to attack. "I will have my chance to try for a stage. I have the freedom to go tomorrow or in the coming stages."
