Sam Bennett: "I don't know how long I can hold the jersey"

"I got separated from my teammates a little bit on the final kilometres. They helped a great bit during the stage, but on the final I got a bit isolated and I had to follow wheels the best I could until the moment came to launch the sprint. There was headwind and I found myself too close too early to the front of the bunch… So I tried to save energy, delay my sprint as much as I could, but I couldn’t lose more speed. Anyway, I’m glad I managed to limit my losses as much as I did. I don’t know how long I can hold this green jersey. The race is going to get harder and harder, but we will see how it goes."
