“I guess that stage win at L’Alpe d’Huez for my first Tour de France, it’s not bad! The idea was to get in the breakaway. I lost enough time yesterday to begin having some freedom. After the Galibier, I got away in the descent, knowing that no one would take the risk to follow me. Chris Froome did. It was pretty nice to getting across with him. We worked well together. He’s a legend! Maybe he’s not as fast as he was but he’s still Chris Froome. It worked out perfectly to break away with him. This win is certainly one of my best moments in cycling, with people’s flags… You can’t experience that anywhere else than at L’Alpe d’Huez.”
