"Fighting for the stage win and the KOM classification? I can’t do everything. Today, when I was on the break, my big goal was to get as many points as possible for the KOM classification. Then of course I acted differently as to how I would have acted if I had been trying to win the stage. The stage win was very far away, with a very strong breakaway that tactically was also super hard to play. I focused on the points, and I’m happy with how it turned out. Our only goal now is to keep the polka-dot jersey for as long as possible. There are two stages left with big points to score. We will try to keep it going like this… and why not win it instead of just keeping it? Paris is still far when you look at the stages remaining. Today has been an important day, because I got a lot of points and my concurrence didn’t score any. It was a good day. I hope I can recover as good as possible, because tomorrow and the day after are super important days for the Mountains jersey and the GC. I hope to have luck by my side and recover well to take points tomorrow as well."
