BBC Sport | Piil savours Tour triumph

BBC Sport have a post-stage interview with Stage 10 winner Jakob Piil, the first Dane to win a stage since his team director Bjarne Riis, who won a stage en route to his overall Tour win in 1996.

But Piil has come close in previous years.

In 2002, his feet slid off the pedals as he was sprinting for the line in Bourg-en-Bresse and in 2001, he was second to Serge Baguet.

"I did not think about it during the stage proper, but I did near the finish. It definitely made me more motivated to win a stage this year," he said.
