Fred Wright (Bahrain Victorious): "In my mind, it was the stage win. I really wanted that stage win. That’s why I was staying in the front the whole day. I’m a bit disappointed, but at least I get to wear a nice jersey [the white]. A leader’s jersey in a Grand Tour is pretty special, so I’m happy I got that white jersey. I thought we could bring [Marc Soler] back, to be honest. Fair play to him, he was super strong. I was feeling good on the climb but not good enough to follow him. I thought maybe we could catch him on the descent. Unfortunately not. I know I’ve got a good sprint, and I led the sprint out for a long way! 3rd and the white jersey is not what I wanted, but I can be happy with it."
