"I have to say that, in the last kilometres, I was actually screaming in pure disbelief. I got two stage wins on the same Tour de France… It’s incredible. I’m speechless. When I saw who was in the breakaway group, I realized I was in the mix with some of the best riders of the world for this type of race. I honestly didn’t know how to beat them, and I was on my limit too. But then I realised that, if I managed somehow to get a small gap, it may enable me to pull it off… And that’s exactly what happened. This is a memory I will carry in my mind for the rest of my life."
