Fernando Gaviria: "I felt fantastic in yellow"

July 8 th 2018 - 19:06

Cycling is just like this: one day you win, the following day you crash. My teammates did their best, but on the last corner a rider went straight and caused a crash. I enjoyed a lot this day with the yellow jersey. It felt fantastic. I just hope to get to wear it again in the future. I don’t know about tomorrow. We will try to deliver a good result, but it will be difficult as there are a lot of teams who are great at team time trials. Now it’s Peter Sagan the one who wears the yellow jersey, and I am happy for him.
