Przemysław Kotulski, POL

The race today was hard with many crosswinds and high pace right from beginning. When the 9 riders attacked, I was on the front of the group so I decided to follow them even though there were still 120 km to go and three climbs in front of us.

I thought that peloton would have caught us on the first climb and I was really surprised when I saw that gap was almost 8 mins! That’s when I told myself to continue working hard to keep that gap. I spent 120 km in breakaway. I fell it was the hardest day on the bike in my life! I left everything on the road.

The last 10km were really really hard. I kept fighting and I got 15th place.
