Andrew Talansky: «It's an absolute honour to win the Dauphiné»

interview15.06.2014Stage 8- Megève / Courchevel

“I didn't plan to do anything like this, especially today as it was the last chance for many teams to go and try to win a stage. We saw some riders attacking so Ryder and I went with them. Towards the end, we had the time gaps but I was trying not to think of winning the race but I focused on my ride only. Once I past the finishing line and I looked at the TV screen, that's when I realized I won. It's an absolute honour to win the Dauphiné. This is the biggest victory of my career so far and I hope there's more to come. I've always believed, and my entourage always believed that I'm capable of achieving something like this but it takes time to put results on the road. It pays off for all the sacrifices I and my family do. It's a reward for my passion for cycling. Moments like this make it up for all the bad moments I've had on the bike.”
