It’s time to end all these questions about me: yes I was sick, I did everything to be able to start and I’m really proud because 2nd place was the big thing, looking better. I think it was a pretty classic Paris-Roubaix, from the first cobblestone sections everyone had a bit of bad luck and that’s the beauty of this race. I wasn’t spared myself, but I managed to stay in the game, mostly thanks to the help of my teammates who helped me at the crucial moment.said the all-rounder.
