Julian Alaphilippe: “The support of the crowd is incredible”

I didn’t have any bigger goal than go from point A to point B today. I also had to make sure that I wouldn’t crash. I wanted to enjoy the support of the crowd as well. It was incredible all the way. Slowly but surely, I realize what the polka dot jersey brings. It’s completely crazy. I thank the public. I’ve never felt that in my cycling career before. I am aware it’s been an incredible Tour de France for me, a very enjoyable one for sure. I’m looking forward to celebrate it with my team. But I don’t want to be carried away. I still have a lot more things to achieve in cycling.
