Mads Pedersen (Trek-Segafredo): "Yes, I really liked this victory. Everyone was working really hard today. I promised [Alex] Kirsch to win today, he got a daughter yesterday and he wasn’t there for the birth, so the whole team worked really hard to give him this second present in a few days. This win is for Alex, his wife and his new kid. No, [I didn’t expected Roglic to attack] not really, actually. It was a really smart move, everyone was really on the limit. Ackermann was just in his wheel, really good job, and I had to use a lot of energy to close him. It was a really good move. I didn’t hear [the crash], I wanted to go to him and I saw he was with destroyed clothing. It’s a pity that he crashed, he hasn’t been lucky this year. I hope he’s not too bad, so he can keep contending for the victory of La Vuelta."
