The team was very strong and I was perfectly led out. There was a tough climb in the finale. We managed to come back just before the last climb and then I was dropped. But we were quite a few riders chasing at the front and we worked together until the finish.
It’s really a great honour and lots of pride to be in that (Soudal Quick Step) train. For me, it’s unbelievable at a personal level but also at team level. I’m really proud of this jersey. We’re going to try to keep and maybe win again tomorrow.
