Stephen Williams (Israel-Premier Tech): “I was confident going into the final climb”
August 19 th 2023 - 19:02
I’m really happy to get win today and repay all my teammates for their excellent work today. It’s also my first victory for this team. I was confident coming into the final climb and was given the responsibility today. It was a bit of a stalemate towards the end because of the headwind. Still, I was able to throw my hands in the air after coming past with a good final kick.
Today’s weather conditions were very demanding. The last hour and a half, in particular, was freezing with all those descents. There is just one more day to go and I will do everything we can to defend and keep this Midnight Sun jersey.
