Julian Alaphilippe: “The strongest won”

July 21 st 2018 - 19:54

 

Behind Jasper Stuyven who made an impressive move, we didn’t have the best organisation but Yves Lampaert and Philippe Gilbert did a big work for me. I remained focused on the final climb but I didn’t know it. I didn’t dare to follow Fraile. I attacked a bit too late. I’m disappointed to come so close to the victory but I have no regret. The strongest has won.
