“The first objective was to be in the breakaway. I was a bit out of sync, but I managed to catch the right group. Once out in front, the best climber’s jersey became the priority! Given today’s weather conditions, I think it was a good option to be at the front, as it was less dangerous! I’d never have imagined that one day I’d be wearing a climber’s jersey, so I’m happy to be wearing it! I’m going to enjoy it tomorrow.”
