Jack Haig (Bahrain Victorious): “It’s incredible to be on this podium. I was speaking with my wife just before and I said: ‘You always dream to be on the podium of a Grand Tour, but you never know if you can’. To be up there on the stage with Primoz [Roglic], I think it’s gonna take a while to sink in. Having a really bad crash at the Tour meant coming here with no expectation, so to be third on the podium, I’m just amazed, I have no words. I just want to thank everyone who helped me get here. It doesn’t happen over night, it takes years and years of work. I will keep approaching things the same way I do. I have the right people around me and I’m just happy.”
