Marie Le Net: "There are many emotions running through my head. I’m super happy with what I’ve done, I think I seized my opportunity. At the beginning, on the radio, they told me not to pull because big teams were chasing. They told me the break wouldn’t go far, that I should save energy to help my leaders in the finale. And then, it stuck. At some point, I heard: 'Marie, you have carte blanche.' And I thought: 'phew, you have to take your chance, this is your day, don’t mess it up!' I felt good and I tried what I could. I’m very happy I went for my chance but I also feel I came close to something very very big. But it was pure bliss, the crowds pushing me, you only see this here! To be on the podium of the Tour de France is something, it warms my heart. I would have preferred it to be for the stage win. But it’s a nice consolation prize!"
