"It was a hard day out there, I was on the limit several times, but somehow, I was able to hang on and sprint to a fifteenth place. For me, it's not so bad, and it's nice that I was the best Canadian rider. But for sure we will aim for a better result with the team on Sunday when we'll be racing in Montréal. There's some more climbing there, which would normally suit more for the riders we brought here for these races. It was great to receive all the support here today, it's a great feeling and it gives a lot of motivation. For sure, we'll be ready for more action on Sunday!"
