“The last stage of the Route d’Occitanie with a lot of wind and echelons confirmed the cohesion of our team. We had two riders at the front with Nairo Quintana and Laurent Pichon. Nairo was reassured the day after the finish in Les Angles. We finish this race with the first place by team which shows our collective strength. The best climber jersey was in Winner’s hands this morning and he went for it. The overall result is quite satisfactory. The icing on the cake would have been an overall podium but Nairo showed he was already in the mix with two weeks to go before the Tour de France.”
