"This is definitely the greatest day in my sporting career. These days I saw my results could improve… I'm happy to pull it off. I felt quite good all day. The beginning was easy and, from the moment we went full gas, my legs felt good. Marco Haller did great job at positioning me. I sat on Pedersen’s wheel and then came off his slipstream to pip everyone on the line. It’s unbelievable I got to win here, in my first Tour de France."
