Christophe Laporte (Jumbo-Visma): "It was really on the limit, with the rain on the downhill. The last rider at the front was going really fast, he gained some time. It was a hard nervous day. We could see him in front of us but you never really know and all the team gave everything. Even Jonas [Vingegaard] led me out until the last 300 metres. On paper it was a good day for me, with nice climbs, not too steep, it suits me well. I knew I had my chances and team knew it as well. They worked all day, I’m happy to bring them this reward. It’s great to be wearing this beautiful Maillot Jaune. I’ll try to honour it."
