Woods: "It's a win for me"

Michael Woods (EF Education First-Drapac): “It’s definitely a special day for me. I started off the season just having a rough start, I was sick, I had no legs… I was questioning my abilities as a rider and today was the first day I actually felt like a bike racer. Originally, my plan was to attack at La Roche-aux-Faucons but I felt so strong I wanted to save it for the sprint. I was lucky to see Bardet attack, I was inspired by how he raced and luckily I was able to follow him. Bob Jungels was incredibly strong, he deserves the win today. It’s definitely the best result I’ve ever had in my life. It’s a win for me. I proved today I can be in contention in a World Tour race. I was at the front of the race, and it was cool. I just enjoy where I’m at. I started cycling at 25 and I’m probably the oldest neo-pro in history, at 29. When I was a runner I used to think I could get better and actually my best results came when I was 18. I still want to improve. But today is such a good result I want to cherish it.”
