GREG VAN AVERMAET: "The legs are there
"I'm happy even if it's always better to win. It was a difficult finish that I didn't know, made for the puncheurs and climbers. My legs are there and the team did a great job to place me. Mollema started the sprint with 600m to go, I stayed in the wheel of Ciccone and there was a break. This kind of race, with a lot of difference in altitude, is ideal to improve your condition for the classics. A good place is always good for the team's morale and mine."[/su_quote]
For his first race, Dorian Godon took the sixth place of the stage. "It's a great collective performance. As I felt good, I gave my best to help Greg and then to take a place. It bodes well for the future," he said.
