Itzulia Basque Country Stage 2

"I actually tried to attack with 1.5 kilometres to go, but it didn't work out. So I tried to ease back and keep something back for the sprint. Bruno Armirail brought me up to the front, and he did a lot of work with 700 to 200 to go, and then I just went for it. I won twice three weeks ago at the Coupe de France, and now, I'm entering a World Tour race where the level is completely dfferent and I managed to win... it's great."
