My hand is getting better

“The rain was pain in the neck. It started raining at the start and I didn’t take off the raincoat until 70km into racing. Then it was pouring down again at the end when I wasn’t pushing hard any more. It really doesn’t matter if I lose two or three hours in Paris. The most important thing for me is to get a stage win,” Roman said.His bumped wrist is gradually getting better every day. “It is not 100% but I think it won’t stop bothering me until I get to Paris. I tried to move it around a bit during the today´s stage, I got out of the saddle more often to see how it reacted. I have seen some improvements,” Roman revealed.“I hope that it will be all right once we get to the mountains. We will see what happens tomorrow, it will be the first really tough stage. I think that only the overall top contenders will be interested in keeping the pace high but if a group of many riders will try to ride away and I will feel that I could succeed, I will have a go. Hopefully, the weather will get better.”Stage 11 (Blaye-les-Mines – Lavaur, 167.5 km): 1st Mark Cavendish (GBr/HTC-Highroad) 3:46:07, 2nd André Greipel (Ger(Omega Pharma-Lotto), 3rd Tyler Farrar (USA/Garmin-Cervélo), 4th Denis Galimsjanov (Rusa/Katusha), 5th Edvald Boasson Hagen (Nor/Sky), 6th Romain Feillu (Fra/Vacansoleil), 167th Roman Kreuziger (Cze/Astana) +5:43.Overall: 1st Thomas Voeckler (Fra/Europcar) 45:52:39, 2nd Luiz Leon Sánchez (Spa/Rabobank) +1:49, 3rd Cadel Evans (Aus/BMC) +2:26, 4th Fränk Schleck +2:29, 5th Andy Schleck (Lux/Leopard-Trek) +2:37, 6th Tony Martin (Ger/HTC-Higroad) +2:38, … 130th Roman Kreuziger +52:13.
