Remco Evenepoel (Quick-Step Alpha Vinyl Team): "This was the perfect race. It was nice to have Trek controlling all day. I promised Mads [Pedersen] to control the breakaway with him, so we did our job. Then, it was up to them to control the breakaway and try to go for the stage. I think what Mads is showing is something really impressive. It was actually quite a hard climb, so big congrats to Trek for today. [In the last kms, I was thinking of] a crash. Getting inside the 3km in case I would get a flat tire or a bike problem. It’s just to stay safe, because tomorrow is the last day and the biggest fear today was to have a crash or to be unlucky. So that’s why we were trying to stay in front with the guys. Then, the last 1,3km was a straight line, so then I could slow a bit down and just follow the wheels."
