Wout van Aert: “I waited for too long”

July 10 th 2019 - 18:46

“Peter Sagan delivered a very strong sprint today. He is kind of a specialist for a stage like today’s. This was a hard sprint. The last roundabout, with 400 meters to go, was a bit of a mess, but I was able to move four positions forward. I knew there was a headwind in the last kilometres. Hence, it was convenient to begin the sprint as late as possible and come from the back of the shoulder of Sagan and such. But I think I waited for a too long time. Hopefully tomorrow I will be able to take it easy.”
