Bou: "I didn’t see myself winning against such riders"

Joan Bou (Euskaltel-Euskadi): "The idea was to go after the polka-dot jersey today, me and my teammates as well. It was hard to make the break but in the end I got an opportunity. It was a strong breakaway. I didn’t see myself winning against such riders but I felt great in the sprint and I was able to win. I’ve won several KOM standings. The goal will be to defend it for as long as possible, it would be nice to wear it for a few more stages. Let’s see how it goes. It’s the team’s objective, this jersey and also to win a stage. We’ll fight in as many breakaways as possible."
