Ben O’Connor:”I’m having trouble controlling my emotions”

“Participating in the Tour de France was already a dream. Winning is a huge bonus. The race was completely crazy. There is a lot of joy now; I find it difficult to control my emotions. I am so grateful to my AG2R CITROËN TEAM which has trusted me this season. I hadn’t really intended to go in the break, so I wasn’t certain what I should do in the breakaway. I saw that we had 5 minutes early on, so we could gain time in the general classification. On a long day like this anything can happen. And in the end, I got the win. I gave it my all until the finish, it was a crazy stage.”
