Remco Evenepoel: “I used to be afraid of shedding the crimson jersey”

“The tip of the stage was completely loopy, particularly within the final three kilometers. How do you analyze it?
Nevertheless, it was a simple stage till then, even when the final ten kilometers had been fairly technical and harmful. I had good legs and I even had in thoughts to have the ability to win the stage. Sadly, I punctured 2.5 kilometers from the end, or one thing like that, and I could not play for victory.

On the time of your puncture, Roglic makes an assault in entrance. What did you suppose at the moment?
I used to be just a little confused as a result of I did not actually know if my puncture had occurred within the final three kilometres. However Klaas Lodewyck (Sporting Director of Fast Step-Alpha Vinyl) reassured me by telling me that I used to be fantastic within the final three kilometers and that the rule utilized. The information calmed me down a bit. However I used to be afraid of shedding the crimson jersey. I noticed on arrival that Roglic had fallen and I hope issues are going properly for him.

Your puncture, the autumn of Roglic, is it proof that one thing can nonetheless occur day-after-day?
It is precisely that ! Just like the day I crashed (through the twelfth stage). This bowl got here from nowhere. It is a bit like what in all probability occurred for Roglic at this time. He could have had a second of deconcentration within the dash. I hope he’ll keep within the race as a result of he deserves it. I misplaced eight seconds general, however it’s not too dangerous but. There are three robust levels left till Madrid, particularly Thursday, and I need to keep targeted. The remainder day did me loads of good and I am recovering from my fall. It is good for confidence. »
