“I don’t know what to say. We wanted to prepare for the attack for Tadej. He attacked but it happened on the landing: I approached from behind, my brother came forward and then we worked together.

On the other hand, the luckiest people that day were Enric Maas (Movistar) and Richard Carapaz (EF Education – EasyPost), who fell about 25 kilometers from the finish in the penultimate drop of the day.
