Julian Alaphilippe: “The yellow jersey makes me proud”

July 18 th 2019 - 18:07

“It’s difficult to explain what it means to hold the yellow jersey on its 100th birthday tomorrow. It means a lot and firstly, it makes me proud. I’m very happy to lead the Tour de France. It’ll enable me to start the time trial last tomorrow. It motivates me to hurt myself even more than usual. I’ll push my limits.”
