Toms Skujins: “I was the strongest in the break”

July 10 th 2019 - 18:42

“Today even though I was at the front the whole day, it was easier than the first day of the Tour de France. Tim Wellens was asking for letting him take the KOM points. To give the breakaway the best chance, I couldn’t say no. Eventually, it was beneficial for all of us. I felt I was the strongest in the break. I knew the peloton was coming close and it was demanding to go on the attack again, but I wanted to see what I could do, although my legs were pretty empty. In the last climb I didn’t have anything left.”
