Odd Christian Eiking: "This is my revenge after the Tour de France"

“I saw after yesterday’s stage that surprisingly I was second in the King of the Mountains classification, only two points behind. I wasn’t sure I was going to go for it because Stephen Cummings is a strong rider but on the final laps, I said to myself why not… I felt quite good and I went all in for the salmon jersey. I wasn’t so happy with my...

Alexey Lutsenko: "It's a big surprise for me"

“I fought four days for winning the Arctic Race of Norway and I only win by one second. It’s a big surprise. It’s cruel for Warren Barguil to lose by so little.

Markus Hoelgaard: "Winning today's stage is better than second overall last year"

“I didn’t plan exactly that but that was one of the places I considered if there was an opportunity for attacking there. It was a perfect moment because the group stopped after riding flat out, so I went for it. I felt good all day and I had really good help from my team.

Warren Barguil: "It'll be tight tomorrow"

“I have mixed feelings about my result. I put my money on Odd Christian because I knew his motivation and I saw his legs. He’s in a great shape. I said he could win and he was stronger than me indeed. I came close to him. There was no more I could do. It’s not a bad result for me. It’ll be tight tomorrow. Only one bonus sprint would be enough for Lutsenko...

Odd Christian Eiking: "An amazing victory!"

“It feels amazing! I get my first win of the year here on this finish against those very strong guys, it’s fantastic. With 1km to go, the other guys at the front slowed down and I saw some riders coming from behind. I knew that I had to go early to surprise them. I went as hard as I could with 400 metres to go. There was a moment I thought it was not going to work...

Mathieu van der Poel: "My legs were hurting after yesterday's stage"

“I’m not really disappointed. I know that after a stage like this one, I’m not the fastest in the bunch. I think I did quite a good sprint. I didn’t feel very good after the hard stage we had yesterday. My legs were hurting a little bit. Let’s hope tomorrow will be better. For someone like me coming from mountain biking efforts, the climb is better...
