July 10 th 2019 - 18:54

“The spirit within my team has always been special. We always fight together to get the victory. Yesterday I was happy to work for Elia Viviani, and today they all did their best for me. It was a nice stage although everyone is looking forward to tomorrow. Why not keeping the yellow jersey… I melt like ice under the sun but every day I spend in yellow is a bonus for me. Tomorrow I’ll have to suffer even more than usual. [About being presented the jersey by Roger Hassenforder] I didn’t know this gentleman. He’s whispered very kind words into my ears. I have a lot of respect for former riders and for the people in general. Even though I’m tired, I keep being thrilled by the encouragements.”
