Magnus Cort Nielsen (EF Education Nippo): "We talked in the team and decided to not go for the big bunch sprints. But when the group was reduced, my team-mates believed in me and wanted to support me in this kind of stages. They did an amazing job. I was able to sit at the back for the first few hours whilst people were fighting for the breakaway. Even though I felt the legs a little bit from yesterday, I managed to get over the two climbs. In the end, Jens Keukeleire brought me to the front and positioned me perfectly for the sprint. There were Matthews, Trentin and a few other fast guys there but we wanted to give it a try. I'm super happy to take this win."
