Dan McLay went to Portugal to conquer the 11th victory of the Arkéa-Samsic team, acquired after a sprint brought to him with great beauty by Christophe Noppe.
But the work upstream had been perfect on the part of all the riders involved in this event.
“We had Anthony in the day's breakaway which gave us some peace of mind.
The little bit of stress came from the wind which at one point was blowing sideways, but in the end it didn't change much.
The whole team protected me well and I only had one hundred and twenty-five meters to go alone!
The victory is really as much for the team as it is for me.
This year was a bit special as it was the first season since my professional debut that I had not won a race.
I don't want to dissociate anyone from this success, Romain Le Roux and Alan Riou rode for me during the stage, Matis did the same in the final.
Bram also protected me well on the edge of the finish line, and Christophe did the last 500 meters in an incredible way.
We now have two more stages that can promote a sprint finish on this 2020 Tour of Portugal ”.
