We had everything under control, says Team Sky boss Brailsford
Team Sky boss Dave Brailsford said he had never thought that his outfit were under any great pressure on stage 10, despite Vincenzo Nibali's attempt to claw some time back on leader Bradley Wiggins.
Asked to describe his team's performance, Brailsford said: "Controlled is the right word.
"The guys weren't under any great pressure to be honest and just rode it down. That was always going to be the plan and that's what they did. There wasn't really a problem there."
