Robert Gesink (Jumbo-Visma): "I can’t really believe it. I’m really grateful to the boys. They were so so crazy strong and I’m really grateful to be in the red jersey. That’s definitely one of the highlights of my career. We heard some intermediate times and they were fast but obviously you have to make it to the end. Everything can happen in a team time-trial but I knew this team had the possibility to win for sure because there are so many strong guys in this group. The plan was to stick with Primoz [Roglic] obviously and the strongest guys. Usually, my job is to help the team and to help Primoz. I think it’s a really nice way from them to say thank you for the last few years of helping. Riding on home soil with the red jersey will be like a dream come true."
