"I’ve been here before on the penultimate with the yellow jersey. I’m under no illusion it will be easy tomorrow. Joux-Plane is a nightmare of a climb, one of the most solid climbs in the world of cycling. Whatever happens tomorrow, we’ll give our all and I’m very motivated to bring this jersey home. I’m over the moon. I think when Movistar set the pace, they didn’t have many guys left. Geraint [Thomas] said: 'off you go'. It was the plan this morning. We have the numbers. It’s great to be back in his team. I’m enjoying riding my bike."
