Dauphiné 1: Some Dedication!


First of all: Karin Ramadan! secondly, I'm sadly back home but only after a second day in paradise.
Finally: it was a sprint in the Dauphiné and Nacer Bouhanni won... his way. Hard to say if it went too far. Sometimes I think there is some racism against that rider. The jury should have the last word...

Nacer Bouhanni:
“I said I wanted to dedicate a win to Muhammad Ali, It may not be a big thing but he represented a lot to me.

I'm really happy, I wanted to win a stage at the Dauphine and now I’ve done it. In the sprint we touched quite a lot, including me with Kristoff. Bennett then launched up the right side and so I made my effort and I hung on in the last hundred metres.
This is my fourth WorldTour win this season and my eighth win so far. I’m motivated by the big races, like the Dauphiné, the Tour de France. There will probably be another two sprints here, so we will try to win again.”
