"I rode pretty this first stages, I tried almost every day to go for victory or good result. I always missed a little bit but today I still felt good so I wanted to try it again. I hoped all the riders were tired from the last 2 stages in the mountain I think it was actually the case. We had not all good things on our side for the breakaway because we had strong wind all day but still I just have a great and I just went all out last 50 kilometres
I started to believe it at 20 to go but I still knew it’s gonna be a long way. I didn’t know all the last km but then I saw that it was still all up and down so that was pretty well for me. Ended was covered in the city, that’s also good. And that I gonna win I realized last 2 – 3 km to go"
