Matîs Louvel wins the Vuelta a Castilla y Leon. He signs his first victory in the professionals! Matîs Louvel "It was a great day. I had the legs and the luck I needed! I managed to get into the breakaway with Bram Welten after trying several times from the beginning of the race. Little by little the group became smaller as we approached the finish. At 20 kilometers from the finish line, we were three riders at the front with a 1 minute lead on the peloton and the two riders with me crashed. I found myself alone at the front and I said to myself: "Well now, the destiny is in your hands, you must not crack" Arnaud Gérard motivated me very well. He said to me: "Come on, this is your day, you're going to get your first professional victory" He gave me the race information, I really trusted him, I never had to turn around to see where my competitors were. I knew that in order to win, I had no choice but to go all out! It's never happened to me to finish a race alone. I've always been fooled before. In the last kilometer I couldn't believe it, I didn't feel like it was me or that it was real. I was thinking "it's not possible, there must be runners ahead of me (laughs)". I'm really happy. It's my first professional win. It shows my progress, it shows that I have the ability to win and it gives me confidence. It's probably my main fault to not have confidence in myself. Here I am taking it to the maximum! It was a great day, I'm super happy!"
