“It was really hard at the end. I just followed the wheels but it was going too fast for me in the end. I gave it all until the finish and it was enough to keep the jersey. Louis Meintjes was the only threat for the white jersey in this group. I couldn't hold his pace towards the end but that was close to the finish. It's a great honor for me to be the best young rider at the Dauphiné against such big rivals. It's something really nice before going to the Tour. Normally at the Tour I won't target the white jersey but I'll be racing for Rafal Majka.”
