Florian Sénéchal (Deceuninck-Quick Step): “We did a perfect lead-out for Fabio [Jakobsen], and he said on the radio: ‘Florian, you can sprint!’ So we waited. Bert van Lerberghe did a superb job, I stayed calm and I gave the maximum in the last 200m. I think Fabio had a flat tyre. I don’t realise yet that I’ve won a Grand Tour stage. It’s crazy. At first, I thought Démare was gonna pass me, or Matthews, I don’t know… But nobody did. I don’t know to thank my teammates. They did a crazy job to put me in the perfect position. A thousand thanks. I am lucky today and I’m very happy for my family, my friends and my wife. It’s a good present.”
