La Vuelta 18 - Magnus Cort Nielsen: "Today it was my turn to give it a go and it was really amazing!"

Magnus Cort Nielsen:
“It’s really fantastic, a big dream come true. Our main goal at the moment is the general classification and protecting Esteban Chaves and Simon Yates, but every now and again we get the opportunity to give it a try. We saw the same with Jens Keuekeleire on stage 12 and today it was my turn to give it a go and it was really amazing. This is fantastic for me to win a stage in my first GrandTour everThis is a great team to be part of at the moment, three stage wins and two guys in the top five overall, it’s pretty special.”
