"This is so special. I’ve been waiting for so long for such a win. I won the national championships but to win in a race like this means so much to me. I feel like now I’ve had my breakthrough and I can keep winning. I didn’t believe it, even when I crossed the line. We knew this was one of the hardest stages. There was a break and it all came together for the final climb. The girls put me in a good position. I felt really good, in control, and I think I did a good sprint. It’s great to be alongside Annemiek [van Vleuten]. I also think it takes pressure away from me and we’re different riders. I’m more punchy and she’s more about the longer climbs. I can climb but I’m not a GC rider. My next ambition is to win classics. Coming here, we all knew the big goal is to win the GC with Annemiek. Sometimes it means we can’t fully play our own cards but we get our reward when we all step on the podium like we did at the end of the Giro. I’m also grateful for the team to have given my chance."
