“It was a long and very hot stage. We rode in front almost all day and in the end, Quinn and Mattias were able to help to go a little further. It was a very fast sprint where I was able to progress positions until reaching 3rd place. I am happy with my performance especially with this being the first sprint that I could properly compete for this year.”
