After Fabio Aru won Stage 5 of the Tour de France and Chris Froome claimed the overall lead, we round up all of the day’s reaction.
Fabio Aru (Astana) - stage winner
“I have won stages of the Giro [d'Italia] and the Vuelta [a Espana] before, but to win here on the Tour is obviously a huge event.
“My attack went really well, but I wasn’t sure when I attacked if I would be able to stay out in the front, so I was delighted to get across the line.
“Vincenzo [Nibali] winning here [in the 2014 Tour] was something I watched a video of, so to win here as well is huge.”
Chris Froome (Team Sky) - 3rd
"Obviously, I'm really happy to be back in yellow. Thankfully all the wounds from the first day were pretty superficial - just a bit of skin lost.
"Fabio rode a great stage today. He went at a really good moment. We maybe gave him too much space, especially with that flat part with 1km to go. No one really wanted to pull there and he was able to open up the gap, so congratulations to him.
"From the other guys, I expected more attacks from some of my rivals, but there is still a lot of racing to come and we can still expect a lot from guys like Richie, Fabio again once we get into the high mountains.
"I'm going to try to defend the jersey as long as I can. This isn't a new feeling for me, being in yellow, so it's something that we have worked hard for and this has been the objective."
Richie Porte (BMC Racing Team) - 4th
"The guys rode super-strong today. Micky Schar and Stefan Küng were absolutely incredible. They controlled an eight-man breakaway just between the two of us, so that is good news for us and also shows we are not afraid to take the race up.
"I would have liked to have been up there more for the stage, but Fabio was super-strong.
"Sky were good, but not as dominant as before. Froome is obviously in great form also - he is still the big favourite here."Astana are going to have more work now. I don't think they're going to get away with sitting back and jumping away like that again. It's good signs for the race."
