“Against Julian and Mathieu, I didn't have a lot of solutions. I tried to start the sprint first, but I knew it would be difficult for me. I tried, it was important to me that the three of us got there together if I wanted to get on the podium.
If the group behind us came back, it would have been more complicated. And I would rather be on the box than finish fifth. "
