Jay Vine (Alpecin-Deceuninck): "Quick-Step weren’t having it, me being in the breakaway today, so my job was to make sure that no one dangerous like Pinot or Soler or someone like that went up the road to take more points for the KOM jersey. Every time I followed, Quick-Step chased me. I wasn’t allowed but we had two riders up the road. To hold this jersey is not an individual effort. The whole team rallied around it. We came to a plan that even if I couldn’t take points today we had to make sure we wouldn’t give away 31 points for free to someone. They worked really awesome today. It’s pretty exciting to ride the time trial with the polka dot jersey. I’m looking forward to that."
