David de la Cruz (UAE Team Emirates): “I want to say I’m sorry for all the guys who crashed today. I wish them a good recovery. Regarding myself, I don’t feel bad because I did my best in final climb. The winner was better than me and congratulations to him. I chased the KOM points to keep the jersey on the Davide Formolo’s shoulders and then I went for myself. The focus in the end was about the stage win, I was close but it wasn’t good enough. Tomorrow is gonna be another hard day. We have to go all in, see if we can keep the jersey, see what we can do with Tadej (Pogacar) and maybe win the stage.”
