“We knew this stage could be tricky. There were alerts starting at kilometer 90. We were vigilant. In the final, the whole peloton was very nervous on narrow and winding roads. Placement was essential. In the final, Jumbo Visma tried to make a strong move, and they came out of the gate as a puncher. We were dominated by a team that hit hard. We have no regrets. Today, I remember that we got through the crashes. Paris-Nice has only just begun, we remain focused.”
