“The polka dot jersey made me dream when I was a kid. In 2015, I missed out on the last mountain stage. It’s a nice satisfaction for me this time. It’s going to be my fifth time on stage on the Champs-Elysées for different awards in seven participation. It’s good to reinvent oneself. Things haven’t gone according to my expectations at this Tour but I’ll enjoy this trophy before thinking about what has not worked. We’re allowed to fail but we’re not allowed to not try and give it all.”
