Stage winner Søren Kragh Andersen

The motorbike told me you have one minute and I realised in the last kilometre that I had the second win.

The first one is of course magical, but today is even more crazy in my opinion; I’m speechless.

First of all, Nicholas did a great job on the front the whole day. We were going for Cees with a sprint finish but the race developed, and it was my job to be represented in the attacks.

Nikias was there so we planned that I would attack from the group and he would go for the sprint. The moment came after Trentin’s attack when it was super hard. I took the chance and I was lucky they let me go.
