Marianne Vos : "We were here to try our best everyday from the first day on. The team did an amazing job to put me there everyday. With 2 stage wins it was more than we could expect, and also riding in yellow and going back home with the green jersey it's fantastic. I would nearly say that I enjoyed every moment of it, but of course I've suffered as long. It has been an amazing week but yeah that makes me more satisfying. It was a great pleasure to be part at this first Tour."
