Julian Alaphilippe: "It was burning in my legs"

June 7 th 2018 - 17:08


“I’m super happy. The Dauphiné is a very competitive race. It’s never easy to win here. I wasn’t far behind [Daryl] Impey on stage 1. Today, it was the only stage win I could target really. Yesterday in the hotel room, I told Bob [Jungels] that I seriously wanted to go for it. I rode flat out in the last five kilometres. It was burning in my legs. At the end, I gave everything. Now I’ll try to help Bob until Sunday evening because I know it’ll be more complicated for me. I’m a punchy rider but not a pure climber.”
