Egan Bernal (Ineos Grenadiers): “My idea today was to enjoy myself. And I was enjoying every kilometre, even if it was hard. I don’t like to just stay on the wheels, you often have to, but this is real cycling. I’ve been suffering a lot during this Vuelta and finally I had good legs. This is a revenge against myself. I’m happy to be part of this victory for Roglic because he was brave. He was leading the race and he went with me, and he was taking turns on the flat. He was the strongest today and I’m happy for him. Tomorrow, we’ll see, because I went deep today. We’ll see how we recover and how Yates is, because I also think he’s strong. And if we have legs, why not go again.”
