Wout van Aert:
“The past three weeks have been amazing. I’m super proud to be part of this. We proved to be a very strong team. At the beginning of the Tour we expressed our ambitions of winning the yellow and green jersey. We did it, we more than dit it. It makes me emotional. Winning the Tour the France as a team is something I’ve dreamt of ever since I was a little boy.”
