Mollema: “A nice tactical finale”

August 29 th 2018 - 18:04

Bauke Mollema (Trek-Segafredo), most aggressive rider on stage 5: “I wanted to start the sprint in last position. I was hoping the guys from behind could come back, so it would have got all a little more nervous. But we still had some seconds left. It was a nice tactical final. I’m happy with how I felt and the legs were. It was a pity. The last 10k were always a bit headwind, but in the end it became suddenly tailwind. That’s how it is. But Clarke is a fast guy and deserved to win.”
