Not positive day for Liquigas-Cannondale in the third stage of Tour de France. The green and blue takes the 15° place in team time trial with the time of 25'45". "We had different expectations and are upset to not have been able to express ourselves like we wanted to. We were aware that we'd lose something in respect to teams more suited to time trials, but undoubtedly the time lost is excessive. With respect to our other team time trials in the past, we lacked something, including myself obviously. Having said that, we have to take action and turn the page. I believe that it's normal to have a negative day in a grand tour but I and the rest of the team will know how to show our true abilities. That's not to say that I'll go on the attack from here to Paris, but to ready myself for the critical stages."
