I’m speechless and immensely proud. The polka dot jersey wasn’t my goal at the beginning of the Tour but once I won a stage, I was a bit more relaxed. It worked out well. Almost every day I’ve built this King of the Mountain victory. This Tour de France is surely a turning point in my career in my relationship with the public.
