Mads Pedersen (Trek-Segafredo): "It definitely was the dream scenario. We knew this finale was pretty good. The boys did really good today and everyone was focused the whole day. I’m just happy that I can finally get the win and give the boys back for all the work they’ve done so far. It’s really nice for all of us. Alex [Kirsch] delivered me in the last corner and there was still 800m to go. So it was perfect to have a good hard tempo. Pascal [Ackermann] jumped early. I jumped with him. It was a long long sprint. To follow Ackermann was a full sprint. So it was a 350m sprint today. We came here for a stage win. And now we have won. I will keep fighting to get one more. It’s super nice to have a comfortable lead in the points jersey but it would be nice to have Sam [Bennett] fighting for the jersey. We’ll keep fighting for stage wins and we will see how it goes."
