"I was comfortable. Tejay and I have shown that we can work together and Damiano Caruso worked well and put us in a really good position. I knew that those descents were going to be crucial. At the end of the day, it's a great day for the team. It's not nice to have lost time like that [flat tyre on stage 2] but you know, you just keep fighting each day I suppose. The signs are good, I had good legs and it's quite exciting."
