Schachmann: "A great team to defend the jersey"
March 8 th 2020 - 15:22
Everything went fine. I launched the sprint from the last position and I moved a little bit to the left. Luckily Peter protected me a lot in the finale. It’s my hardest race so far this season. I did not have great legs but in the end, I felt that in spite of the pain, I still had some strength left to make it back on the two leaders in the last climb.
It’s great to clinch that victory for the Bora team. I’m really happy because I missed victory by very little in the Tour of Algarve and to win ahead of these guys is amazing. It’s new for me to be in the yellow jersey but we have a great team her to defend it.
