“I did a big sprint”
“It depends on placement in the last corner, I was a bit far. I did a big sprint, I’m coming back very quickly, after that it’s like that, Peter Sagan is back! I had marked Alexander Kristoff, and at the penultimate corner we arrived super fast, I thought we were never going to pass this corner, I was on the outside I lost a little places. I think I did a big big sprint, but too far. It bodes well for the future, I said this morning that the legs were good, they are.”a smile the French sprinter.
