Fuglsang: "Everything has come together"

April 28 th 2019 - 18:29

Jakob Fuglsang (Astana), winner of Liège-Bastogne-Liège: “It’s an amazing feeling. This week was a big goal for me and to crown it with a victory in such a race is just amazing. I don’t know why it came late. First I had to grow up. This season, it seems like everything has come together. Now it clicks. It took some time but now I hope I have two or three more years to enjoy it. Before the downhill leading to La Redoute, I was on the wheel of Luis Leon Sanchew and Julian Alaphilippe was following his guys, I looked to see how he was feeling. He looked back and said: ‘I hope you win today’. I think he knew he wasn’t at his best because of the weather or Roche-aux-Faucons could be too hard for him. I had made up my mind and my finish line had to be on top of La Roche-aux-Faucons because if I was in a group I probably wouldn’t win. When I looked back at (Michael) Woods, he was basically dropped. And Davide (Formolo) was two or three metres behind so I figured it’s now or never, you have to die or win, give it all. I don’t know if the new route favored me. But now I do like it.”
