â€śI'm pretty sore, all my knee and my back, but my legs were better today than yesterday after the crash. I had that four minutes gap to play with. It gave me a breathing space. I just had to stay in front. It's a huge relief to cross that finish line. The last 24 hours have been pretty chaotic but my team-mates helped me so much to keep the yellow jersey on my shoulders. It's an amazing feeling [to win the Tour]. It could be like the first one again.â€ť
Chris Froome: «It's a huge relief»
interview23.07.2016Stage 20- MegĂ¨ve / Morzine
Ion Izagirre claimed his first Tour de France stage victory as he arrived solo in Morzine after riding away from Vincenzo Nibali and Jarlinson Pantano in the downhill of col de Joux-Plane. Romain Bardet and Nairo Quintana took no risk to secured their spot on the final podium along with Chris Froome on the eve of the Parisian parade.
â€śI'm very cold, very tired but very happy as well. With three stage victories and two distinctive jerseys, we have reversed the bad luck we endured at the beginning. I want to congratulate Chris Froome for his victory but we're also happy with our two jerseys [green and polka dot].â€ť
