Statements - Mathieu van der Poel

"Everyone saw that Alaphilippe was the strongest, no doubt. I did everything I could today, but I had no more in my legs. In the second stage we have another chance. I'll try to beat Alaphilippe, but he's the absolute favorite".
9:50 AMa month ago

Statements - Ide Schelling

The first wearer of the leader's jersey of the mountains spoke about the first day: "The plan was for me to get into the breakaway. Above all, to help my teammates, to prevent them from having to pull the peloton and to allow them to save their strength, because we had a few tricks to go for the win on the final climb. I managed to get into the breakaway and I started to fight for the mountains jersey. At one climb I realized that there was someone stronger than me in the sprint and I decided to start from a distance on the next one. I opened a gap, I saw that it was big, and I said to myself... Here we go! I continued the solo breakaway to secure the red points jersey. To race the Tour de France is a dream come true, and to get this jersey is.... unbelievable!".

 

9:45 AMa month ago

Statements - Julian Alaphilippe

"This victory is a great satisfaction and the result of a great team work. In the pre-stage meeting I told the team that I wanted to ride as if there was no stage tomorrow and give everything on the last climb. My teammates believed in me and rode as a block almost all day. We accelerated at the foot of the final climb with the aim of hurting the fastest riders, and we succeeded. When my teammate Devenyns opened up, I pulled away, opened up a gap and, seeing that everyone was at their limit, I continued to the finish. I attacked from a long way back, but that's how you get the most beautiful victories. I hope people enjoyed my victory, both from the side of the road and on TV, and I thank the fans for their support and encouragement. Tomorrow there's another beautiful stage where I'll try not to lose the yellow jersey. But even so, I would almost say that my Tour de France has already been a success."
