Julie Van de Velde : "I tried to not look back"

"It's a bit of mixed feelings because I came so close to the stage victory. But it's a dream to be in the polka-dot jersey, it's an amazing day... With Yara [Kastelijn], we were 1 and 2 in the QOM classifications, so we could try both as long as the jersey stayed in the team, that was the most important… I heard that the teammates were doing a great effort to try to block the speed in the bunch. And I heard my sports director saying that the gap was growing again, so I tried to give everything, tried to not look back, but unfortunately they came in the last few hundred meters."
