Matteo Jorgenson: "I never thought it was possible"

“To be honest, I never expected to win Paris-Nice. Until this year, I never thought it was possible. But here we are. It could not have gone any better today and the whole week. It’s really not sunk in yet.

I could barely sleep last night. I was so nervous. I felt pressure for the first time in my life. To ride with such a champion as Remco was a very special...

Remco Evenepoel: “Matteo deserved to win”

“If you’ve seen my attacks today, only one guy could follow, it was Matteo. He deserved to win. I attacked three times on Cote de Peille, he was the only one to follow. Of course Vlasov jumped across but he left a lot of energy in so doing and Matteo is the deserved winner of this race.

I should be more than happy for the ending of this beautiful week. Today...

An American in Paris-Nice

Three escapees

The real start was given at 12:05 to 118 riders. David Gaudu (Groupama-FDJ), Elmar Reinders (Jayco AlUla) and Madis Mikhels (Intermarché-Wanty) did not start. At kilometre 4, Laurence Pithie (Groupama-FDJ), Victor Campenaerts (Lotto Dstny) and Johan Jacobs (Movistar) broke clear and the pack failed to react. They led the bunch by two minutes but...

A matter of seconds

As has often been the case in the past, Paris-Nice could be decided by a few seconds in the classic final stage in the Nice hinterland. Brandon McNulty (UAE Emirates) will bring a four-seconds lead over fellow-American Matteo Jorgenson (Visma-Lease a Bike) into Sunday’s 109.3-km ride and though slim, it might be enough to be crowned the winner in the Race to the Sun.

Matteo Jorgenson: “The win in Paris-Nice is possible”

“I feel really good. It was a day to get through and take time on Brandon. I achieved both those things so I can be super happy and be ready for the most important day of the week in which anything can happen. Remco was strong but I didn’t feel like he was anything crazy. I was able to respond to all his attacks. He takes some seconds bonus but I took some time off...

Brandon McNulty: “A bit of a bad moment”

“It was a tough day, not long but full gas, in the end I’m happy to keep the jersey. I just had a bit of a bad moment, my legs just went bad, I was cold, I fought as hard as I could to keep the jersey another day. Tomorrow will be full gas again, all in the rain, it’s going to be a tough one. I like this kind of day more than a long climb like today but it’s...

Aleksandr Vlasov: "It’s a lucky mountain”

“I’m really happy to win here, in a World Tour stage race, one of the most important in the calendar. I know that Ilnur Zakarin won here in 2016, it’s a lucky mountain for us. I had good legs today. The plan to see how the last climb went and whether I should help Primoz or follow some attacks and go. I found the moment and decided I could go and I went for...

It is now or never

Before the start of this Paris-Nice, the peloton were gearing up for a queen stage on terrain becoming more and more familiar to the riders in the mountains around Nice with the ascents to La Colmiane and Auron, roads that will be part of the Tour de France final week-end in July. Weather has changed their plans as Saturday’s stage 7 will be much shorter, with only 104...
