Another Eisel top 10

Bernhard Eisel of Française des Jeux finished second in the group sprint in stage 13, 30 minutes behind the winner, his seventh top ten finish in the Tour. "It was another quiet stage. At the beginning I wanted to get in an escape group, but I just didn't have the legs for it," he said. "With these oven-like temperatures averaging 36 degrees and a high of 41 degrees Celsius, everybody had heavy legs today. It went well in the sprint, but I couldn't get past McEwen. But I'm still very satisfied with my performance."
