King of the Mountains.

“It was necessary to pay a lot of attention but I did well. I've been lucky but I was also always well positioned. I had bookmarked this stage before the Tour. I wanted to do something and I've managed to follow the best specialists till the end, well… almost till the end because I got a flat tyre in the last section, which prevented me from fighting for a few higher places. But in overall, I'm satisfied. It went well because I'm used to the cobbles. They aren't a major problem for me. Hats off to Nibali! What he did today proves that he's a great champion, able to adapt to all terrains. And he's got a strong team.”

  • Boom wins, Nibali triumphs, Contador struggles, Froome pulls out
