Taylor Phinney being interviewed by Greg LeMond.
"I won that second KOM and definitely had this jersey, and then it turned into this like, 'Oh wait, maybe we can win. We can win the stage. I've raced with Yoann Offredo for a long time and I've always been friendly with him. He was definitely the strongest dude in the break, we both were, so when we found ourselves together I just turned to him, 'Finalement, let's do this.' When we crossed the finish line I kind of put my arm around him and was like we're friends for life bro. You got me for life."
