Sven Erik Bystrom: “Magnus has been super strong”

“I wanted the polka dot jersey as much as Magnus but he’s been super strong. I found myself in a difficult situation because he’s a faster sprinter than I am. But I still had a good day, especially at the beginning when we dropped the two Frenchmen. Of course they wanted the same thing as us and they were two. I chose to attack from far out in the first hill because that gave me more chances than if I waited for the last 200 meters. It’s incredible to race with so many people on the road sides. It’s a come-back for me because I came here for racing fifteen years ago but it wasn’t the same atmosphere. The Tour is unique.”
