"Mentally, it was really intense. Even in the neutral start, the whole peloton started to rub shoulders. I was behind the car, normally I was safe but I got pushed straight away! There was a lot of tension. I told my teammates: ‘Be careful, when the flag goes up, something is going to happen. It didn't miss.’ The bunch split in several groups… The 2nd in the best young rider classification [Ella Wyllie] was in the breakaway. We were not too worried, there was a maximum gap of 45". But we said to ourselves that at some point we would have to bridge the gap. Sandra |Alonso] rode a lot, then Canyon//Sram took over as well. It came back on a climb, it was very intense, it was very fast all day. When Bauernfeind attacked, I was a little more focused on Ella Wyllie, because she had also tried to put in attacks. I was playing it safe. I wanted to try something in the sprint. But without a teammate, it was complicated to position myself."
