Mike Teunissen (Jumbo-Visma): “Actually, it wasn’t the plan. I’ve been saying already for a lot of days that we’re mainly here to take care of Primoz [Roglic], also today that was the big plan. But actually this morning the guys surprised me a bit saying that, if it all went as planned and Primoz went safe into the last 3 km we could see if I could be the one crossing the line first. It was already pretty special. I want to thank the team and everyone involved. The yellow jersey is pretty special, but the red one after that is maybe even more special. I aim for more, but it was an amazing day and I’m already looking forward for tomorrow. In my home country, with a lot of people cheering, it’s really amazing for me and for everyone.”
