Jasper Philipsen (UAE Team Emirates): “That’s amazing. I can’t describe how happy I am with this victory. That means a lot for me. I’ve been waiting for the right moment since the start of La Vuelta and today it came. It was hard to say [if we’d catch the breakaway] but in the end we saw other teams controlling. It was a really strong breakaway but the headwind all day made it really hard for the front group. I believed in it more and more but at the beginning of the day I didn’t expect it to be a bunch sprint. I like uphill finishes but not too hard. Let’s hope [it’s just the beginning]. They can’t take this victory away from me, so I’ll enjoy this moment, try to finish my first Grand Tour now and I’m super proud of this.”
