Veteran Australian hopes to return next year

Orica-GreenEdge have thus far failed to win an elusive first stage in their debut Tour de France, but the Australian team can be "proud" of their displays in the world’s toughest and most important race according to Stuart O’Grady.

In this exclusive video O’Grady tells Cyclingnews that “there are no birthday presents” at the Tour and that his fledgling team have performed well in what is their first appearance in the race. The 37-year-old, a three-time stage winner and former yellow jersey holder at the Tour earlier in his career, also said that he hopes to return in GreenEdge colours next year.
