Perez: “It was super hard”
March 12 th 2021 - 16:31
If you look at my face, you can see that I’m even more shattered than yesterday. We’ll see tomorrow. It was super hard to get into the breakaway and I was surprised I was able to do it. I had the legs but you need a little bit of luck. Once in the front, it was a long day with the headwind and Alexey and Kenny pulling very hard and I had to work hard to stay with them but luckily they were not fighting for the polka-dot. I didn’t check the course, I will see tonight what we’re supposed to do. I’m glad to have held that jersey, and I’m even happier to keep it another day and who knows, maybe to keep it until Nice.
