McNulty: “I was gonna make it or die”
March 10 th 2022 - 16:45
"This is my first World Tour victory and the circumstances make it really special. I had a crash in the echelons, and the GC was off, but I managed to recover and to take the victory todays is incredible. I realised this morning these were the same roads where I won the Faun-Ardèche Classic two weeks ago. The plan was to go in the breakaway, and I thought I was gonna make it or die. I had great legs all day so I could make it. I kind of hoped to go solo when I attacked with 39km to go. The course was either climbing or descending, and I wanted to go all out on the climbs and take less risks on the downhills, so it was better to go solo."
