Richie Porte: “To finally win here, I’m over the Moon”

"I’ve been 2nd twice on GC, I also lost the 2nd place in the final km another year, so to finally win it, I’m over the Moon. All the sacrifices with my wife and my two kids, it’s worth it. And with Ineos Grenadiers, this team was unbelievable today. I know the descent from Joux Plane, I’ve done it many many times. I decided to do my own pace. I saw G [Thomas] crash. Obviously it was not ideal but he came back, with some road rash, but hell be tip top for the Tour. I’m under no illusion as to what my job is in the Tour. To win this race means so so much to me. I’ve always enjoyed it and to win at 36 yo means so so much."
