“This is very special. This was my goal and when you finally succeed, you are very happy. For me, this was the best I could do. In today’s stage, it was a matter of paying attention and making it safely across the finish. When I crossed the line, I finally had that feeling of finishing third. It is an amazing feeling. So far, this is my career’s crowning achievement, but I am hungry for more in the coming years. I am very grateful to the team for the past three weeks. Everyone played an important role. Moreover, with four stage wins, it was a more than great Tour.”
