Benoît Cosnefroy: "My jersey is insignificant compare to Nans' victory"

“I didn’t expect to be here this evening with the polka dot jersey. Above all, it’s a very nice day for Nans [Peters] who achieves something incredible on his first Tour de France. Besides that, my jersey is insignificant. It was complicated to catch the breakaway. Then we dealt with the time gap pretty well. Nans attacked strongly and I couldn’t follow him. I knew he’d make a difference in the downhill. In the meantime, I enjoyed sharing my polka dot jersey with the crowd.”
