“This stage looked like a transfer from the beginning. The escape went away and the pace went. Finally, about 70 km before the finish line, the escape came down and started again. The boys did a great job. They successfully covered all the boardings. About seven kilometers before the finish, a yellow man came in. I waited and later I covered it. They went to the finish line, and that’s where I came out, “said Lukáš Kubiš.
