Rémi Cavagna (Deceuninck-Quick Step) : “I suffered a lot at the end of the race. The last 25 kilometres were terrible. It was pretty much headwind. I wanted to go faster but I couldn’t. I was afraid they would come back and in the end it worked out. I looked behind in the last straight and I saw they were in the corner. Then, I said, ok, they’re too far, I’ve won. Every day we try to do our best with the team. It’s already our fourth stage win. We were riding for Philippe [Gilbert] today. A big group went, I followed and I didn’t have to pull because my leader was at the back. It was my goal, to win a stage at La Vuelta. And this is deliverance. I have a very good recovery. As every day passes, I feel in a better condition. I won’t say I’m feeling really fresh, but I still have strength. It was my last opportunity to win and I did everything I could.”
