In the end I went for it


Benoit Cosnefroy

For a team that has a low budget and no real GC hope, Team Sunweb is doing very well as they strike again.

"I have no words. I dream about this but it is always hard to say I am good enough before I have done it. I'm amazed and full of emotions. It's crazy, huh?

I had really good legs the whole day. Of course you never know how good the other guys are but my legs felt good all day. It took a long time in the Tour to get confident, but I knew if I was suffering they were suffering too, and in the end I went for it."
