"It was a pretty hard day, short but really hard, cold, rainy… I lost a few metres on the climb but everything was under control. I lost contact on the final descent but I knew I’d be safe. It was a good day out there. The team did a good job. [To take the white jersey] is a good victory I’d say. We started the race wanting more, but the race is what it is, we kept fighting and we got a reward."
