Stijn Devolder (Belgium, 13th)

"It wasn't great, not bad. I know I can do better than this but my condition just went down. At the Vuelta, I was at the top but now it's slowly degrading. I still feel those three mountain stages in Spain, where I tried to hold on to my GC placing. I haven't recovered from that yet. Today, I had a good ride, but no extra."

David George (South Africa, 17th)

"I think I'm happy with my race today: I just finished the Vuelta so I wasn't really sure of how I was going to come out of that. In a time trial, you always give a 100 percent, that's all you can do. But it was essential not to go out too hard today, to be able to keep the speed going in the end."

Ben Day (Australia, 21st)

"It didn't go too bad; I just felt that I couldn't really suffer anymore in the finish. It's just the wrong season and I'm not really fit. It's a tough course and a fair climb, so the winner today will really deserve the rainbow jersey."
