Bjarne Riis warns that Wiggins and Froome 'must stay friends'
Bjarne Riis of Team Saxo Banks tells Matt Rendell that Bradley Wiggins and Chris Froome 'must stay friends' as they dominate the GC race at the 2012 Tour de France.
Asked how Team Sky can deal with having the top two riders in the race, Riis said: "They most important thing is that those two guys stay friends, and they help each other.
"One is sacrificing for the other when the moment is, and they know when the moment is, for sure. Whether they are able to do that I don't know - you'll have to ask them."
As for Team Saxo Bank's Michael Morkov, who launched a brave attack on Stage 13, Riis said: "He's in good condition, he's a guy who likes to attack. He certainly knows how to go in a breakaway. he feels good and when you feel good you need to show something, and he did a great race today."
"It's different. It's a different approach. I miss Alberto [Contador] a lot ... but he's not there, and we have to get the best out of the team that we have, we need to go and attack, we need to get in breakaways, like we do, and I think we've achieved what we want to do here."
