"We knew it would be a hard day but it was a very good course for me, really. These big long straights aren’t my favourites but I put my head down and rode the climb as fast as possible. I made a good time. It was a good day for me. It’s a sprinters’ stage tomorrow, so hopefully other teams will be eager to control. It’ll be a massive task to bring the yellow jersey till the end. I hope to do it but I’ll take it day by day. It’s gonna be tricky. I’m sure the mountain stages will be hard to control."
