“Like I said before,” Ewan said after the last stop. “It’s a sprint and sometimes you win and sometimes you lose and next time we’ll do better. We will analyze what went wrong and next time we will get there.
“It was just that we had limited guys so we had to take a little more risk, you know, just sit in the wheels a little bit more. ”
“And when you take those risks then sometimes you’re overwhelmed sometimes you’re locked in and that’s what happened today and we kinda locked ourselves in and couldn’t get in early enough.” ”

“Overall we can consider the Tour a good one. Two stage victories. My fifth victory for the team in the Tour.
“So I think we did a really good job, especially since there were six of us at the start, then five guys after a few more days.
“I think we’ve gone beyond what we had here. “
