Christophe Laporte: "the cherry on the cake"
"The green jersey was not the goal but it’s definitely a satisfaction. The overall standings with Jonas [Vingegaard], four stages and the green jersey - it’s a great week for us. If I had been told I would win two stages in the Dauphiné, I would have taken that immediately! The green jersey is the cherry on the cake. We came with the GC as our main focus,...
Carlos Rodriguez: "I must be happy with where I am, seeing where I come from"

"The last 500 metres were really long. But with all the people on the roadside, it was really nice. When I looked behind I saw I was in front with some gaps. I’m really happy I made it to the finish. This year, the Giro was on my program but I had a problem just before. I spent 10 days off the bike so the condition was not 100%. I started the race with the Tour de France...

And he relentlessly works to...
