Romain Bardet (AG2R La Mondiale) : “It’s a satisfaction. I’m very motivated for this race, I love it. So I’m happy with getting closer to the win. I don’t have any regrets. I had good legs but mostly I was smarter than other years. Bob Jungels was the strongest guy today. He deserves his victory. When he went clear on La Roche-aux-Faucons, the pace was really high. We attacked in the finale and we weren’t able to see him so we knew we were racing for the second place because he’s such a class rider, we knew we couldn’t bridge the gap on the flat. It’s a very tactical race, you could see how fast we were going in Saint-Nicolas and still nobody could go clear. It was easier for me as an underdog. I’m not a favorite for this race and I probably never will be. It was an open race and I enjoyed myself very much with that kind of scenario. All this makes me look forward for the Summer.”
