"I think this is pretty much the story of my career. I've had so many rollercoasters, ups, and downs. After yesterday, I think that was a big opportunity missed. Yesterday was a really good stage for me, this three-day block, from yesterday until tomorrow was what our team was aiming for in the second week.
Today, I just knew this would probably be my last chance. Into Lusanne was a big opportunity, I came up second, then I was second to Tadej, second best again, so it is extra special to get the victory today."
"He has changed over the years, he is a different rider to what he was four or five years ago but what he has become is a lot more robust and his ability to climb has obviously improved, but he has still got that snap there.
