Statement from the stage winner

Speaking seconds after the stage finish, the stage winner Tim Merlier, said: “It feels very good to win for the first time this year. My shape was already good but I didn’t get the results yet. It was again a really hectic sprint. First of all, I had to survive the mountains. Then the team put me in a very good position. Let’s hope that I’ll win again tomorrow but the first goal of the team is already reached.”
