Egan Bernal (Ineos Grenadiers): “I didn't think there would be so much madness at the end, I just wanted to be well placed. With only 3 km I felt it could split, I was in good position and that's when they said that the bunch was parting. I tried to look back but there was a rider behind me and I didn't know how many of us were in front. It was three kilometres and you had to go full throttle. Being more than two minutes behind in GC, gaining five seconds on a flat stage isn’t a big thing. The good thing is that I got ahead, I did not fall and let's see how I am tomorrow. Five seconds does not mean a lot, you have to be honest. And there can't be much change from one day to the next. I'm not going to fly tomorrow all of a sudden, I'll just try to do my best so that when I get home I will have the satisfaction that I gave it my all.”
