1. Frank said Het Nieuwsblad: “I don't want to be captain. I can't continue to perform at top level"
“I did the preparation for the Ardennes classics, then I went unexpectedly to the Giro. I'm not a machine"
“I don't want to be named as the leader, because if I put in a disappointing performance, then everyone can afterwards complain that I was not good enough. "
2. Kim Andersen said politiken.dk: “I've obviously heard predictions that Fränk with his current form has a good chance to be in the showdown for the win, but to pin your hopes on it seems to me crazy. It should be remembered that Fränk has competed at a high level ever since the start of Giro d'Italia in early May, so it's completely unrealistic to believe that he can compete among the best in the Tour over three weeks in July.”
My opinion: smart move (away). I totally agree. Riders are not puppets you send here and there. But I think Frank will show something nice in July, not as a leader, just as a very good climber. Just for fun.
