"It was a tricky start. The first 30 kilometres included very narrow and twisty roads, so we were prepared for a big fight. We wanted to have no more than two guys on the break, because we wanted to have at least two guys with Jonas [Vingegaard]. It was by accident that it finally was three of us guys in the break. We made a plan for Steven [Kruijswijk] to wait for Jonas as I rode for Sepp [Kuss] at the front. This was Sepp’s day. He lives in Andorra and he was looking forward to this stage. I’m happy he managed to get this amazing victory for him and for the team. He spends the whole year working for others, so it’s nice he gets his own chance. Jonas is really trying to gain some time on [Tadej] Pogacar and the rest of favourites. It hasn’t worked out so far, but we will keep trying. Everyone is so committed and helpful on this team."
