Julian Alaphilippe: "I'm speechless"

July 24 th 2018 - 18:23

 

I feel an enormous joy. It leaves me speechless. It’s been a hard day of suffering. It look a lot of time for the breakaway to go. Eventually it was a big group at the front. Honestly, everyone was at the limit. Today I felt all the effort I produced since the beginning. I wasn’t at 100% but luckily I wasn’t the only one who was tired, otherwise I wouldn’t have won. I came here for a training camp so I knew the finale with the tricky downhill. Adam Yates crashed. I feel sorry for him. I waited a bit to see if he was OK. I also took some risks and it paid off. I’m super happy to win. It was my goal to win a stage and now I’ve got two.
