Dylan Groenewegen: The results must improve

LottoNL-Jumbo's Dylan Groenewegen finished sixth in Thursday's Tour de France stage and continues to look for his first top result.

Groenewegen never really got to the front in the sprint and found himself on the wrong side of the road. The Dutchman believes that in hindsight, he should have chosen the wheel of Marcel Kittel.

"It was a very chaotic sprint, like all the sprints in the Tour de France," he said. "Afterwards, you see that the wheel of Kittel was the best wheel to be on, but I would still have to come over him. Démare went on the right and I chose to follow him. That did not work out in the end because of the chaos."

"Today I got pushed out of the wheel ten times and pushed riders out of wheels ten times, that is how chaotic it was. You try to be in the best position possible, but that is where everybody wants to be. That is not easy, but today it went quite well.

"The results must improve. We keep on trying and who knows where it leads us," he concluded.

This is the second Tour de France participation for the 24-year-old from Amsterdam.
