The 2014 Tour de France came to a close on the Champs-Élysées this evening, ORICA-GreenEDGE finishing the three-week Tour with seven top-ten stage finishes and a bright future.
The team started the Tour with five debutants and despite the adversity thrown at them sport director Matt White said he was proud of the team’s commitment to the plan.
“It wasn’t the smoothest of runs for us before the Tour even started and with Simon’s (Gerrans) crash on day one it changed the plans and affected our ability to achieve the goals we set out before we started,” sport director Matt White said.
“We had five new guys to the Tour de France. They certainly committed to the plan day in, day out and we can’t fault the guys on how they carried themselves.
