After stepping down from the podium, it was Annemiek van Vleuten’s remarks: “It was a very good race, especially because this week we made a great team effort. In the end, a team time trial like on the first day is the best example of teamwork, but more than everyone, on the second day the girls did a great job, preparing the ground perfectly so that I could get everything I had. Saturday was also an important day. Closing a big gap like Kiesenhofer did was something you can’t do alone. On a personal note, I’m very happy with the sensations I got, especially the day at Colindres. You always have doubts, after spending five weeks without competing, without being tested your fitness against your rivals, but I will go to the World Championship calm and convinced that I can maintain the level I reached on the Tour”.
