Julian Alaphilippe: "I'm happy this day is over"

“It was a pretty complicated stage, a super nervous one. There have been quite a lot of damages. I’m happy to have reached the finish line in one piece. We’ll evaluate with the team what has happened to us today. In the finale, we still had Davide Ballerini who was well positioned but I’ve seen Sagan crashing with Ewan, we were riding at 70kph so I’ve had to avoid them. It’s was a mentally demanding day that required a lot of focus. I’m happy it’s over.”
