Jens Voigt: Not seen this for 10 years

By Brecht Decaluwé in Morzine

Jens Voigt, the German teammate of Carlos Sastre, knew that the Spanish rider was able to gain time on his rivals: "We knew that Carlos was very strong. When the mountains get steeper, he gets better."

Still there was one man that was even stronger today: "That's just Floyd Landis. Yesterday wasn't good, so today he would attack. He's a great champion with a strong mind. It was a great move from him and I've got all possible respect for him," Voigt said.

The last three days will sort out who will be the winner of the Tour de France. We asked whether Voigt still believes in the chances of his teammate: "He's only twelve seconds away from the yellow jersey. Everything is still possible so we hope for the best. Sastre is a super strong time trialist. It will be the most important time trial of his life. It is all just very exciting, I think we haven't seen something like that for ten years."
