Tour de France: Tommy D answers the call in the climb into the Pyrénées


St12 Tyler VdV After the stage, VeloNews veteran reporter John Wilcockson caught up with Tommy D. Here’s part of his interview, and you can read the whole thing at Danielson has finished top 10 at the Vuelta — seventh in 2005, sixth in 2006 and ninth in 2010 — but those placings never earned him a Tour slot until now. Asked how the two grand tours compared, he said, “I don’t know. I think I’m in better shape here so I’m actually suffering less here than I was at the Vuelta. But I guess it’s harder. It’s definitely faster and there’s a lot more attention on it. There were a lot more people (on today’s stage). I was having trouble seeing where I was going with all the flashes and stuff. So that was pretty cool. A lot of fun.”

The whole team is making this Tour a lot of fun for all of us. Check out their Edge data as posted to Garmin Connect – such as Tommy D’s Stage 8 stats below – and be sure to follow @Garmin and @Ride_Argyle on Twitter and visit for in-depth race reports.
