"I made a bit of a mistake in the end. I must say the 13 guys worked very well together the whole day. But in the finale I made a mistake by trying to let De Marchi in and I left a bit of a gap and Cort Nilesen started his sprint with 700 metres to go. I could not get to the wheel. He was the strongest but I made a mistake. I wore the polka-dot a lot in my career. I have a lot of Paris-Nice jerseys. It's another one for the collection. I will try to defend it but I hope to get a stage win also. It's better for me than the jersey."
