2023 CALL FOR "CYCLE CITY" LABEL NOW OPEN

Jonas Vingegaard: "Since last year, I beleived I could win the Tour"

“It means everything to me [to win the Tour de France]. It’s really incredible. It’s hard for me to put words on it. It’s the biggest win in cycling. Having my two girls [girlfriend Trine and daughter Frida] on the finish line meant even more to me. Since last year, I always believed I could do it. It’s a relief that I did. I’m just so happy and proud. What happened two years ago [Primoz Roglic losing the yellow jersey in the closing time trial], we always thought about it and we didn’t want it to happen again. We just wanted to go for it today. I wanted as good a stage result as possible. [Wout van Aert crying] just shows how close everyone is in this team. It’s a special thing we have in this team: everyone is so happy for each other. I’m also really happy for Wout to win today. These guys are my true friends, brothers I would say. I guess we can celebrate tonight. It’s special for the whole Jumbo-Visma team and for Denmark as well. I don’t read the media so I don’t know how crazy it is but I can guess.”
