"First of all, I want to thank my team. They worked a lot for the whole week and today again they were impressive in the finale so that nobody could take the win. Ineos Grenadiers went very hard and [Geraint] Thomas left a split. I felt it was time to go but I kept a steady pace and I managed to pass him in the last metres. To still be at the front now is amazing. Miguel Angel Lopez is doing well, Enric Mas too. They are great climbers and we’ll give our best with them this week-end."
