I knew I had to go


"My feelings were better than I expected. It's really a good day spent. I was able to be active when I returned to competition without a problem. I finished with the best on this first stage of the Tour des Alpes Maritimes et du Var, which gives me a feeling of tranquility mixed with joy."
