Mathieu van der Poel: "Alaphilippe is the strongest"

“Everyone has seen that Alaphilippe has been the strongest, without any doubt. I gave everything I could today but I had nothing more in the legs. Tomorrow we’ll have another opportunity. It’ll consist of beating Alaphilippe but considering what we saw, he’s the absolute favourite. It’s been a pleasure to wear this so special jersey today.”
