Remco Evenepoel: "Hopefully I have a chance tomorrow"

"It was a bit annoying with the wind coming from the side, so the peloton was always a bit stressed out, but in the end it was a quiet day and a good day to try to recover from yesterday’s effort. At one point, I saw [Casper Pedersen] drop back. I thought he was involved in the crash but apparently not so it was a bit of a strange situation. He probably tried to do his best and he will get another chance on Sunday. Hopefully I have a chance tomorrow. It depends on how the start will be. We’ll see because today I felt quite tired from the last two days. I hope I can recover well over the night and we’ll see about tomorrow. The good thing is I don’t have to think about the mountain jersey anymore. So it’s full focus on the stage win. It’s a pretty hard and long day to finish the Vuelta."
