" I had a great day ".
"I had a great day. It's the first victory of the season for the team and it consoles me after the first stage where I was very disappointed with my fourth place. Everyone was exceptional from start to finish.
I had great legs and that almost played tricks on me because I was in the first breakaway. In the final, the guys placed me perfectly. It's only happiness.
Next week, I will approach the Boucles Drôme-Ardèche in the same state of mind to prepare Paris-Nice where I will be ambitious.
