Clément Berthet: «Great feelings»
«It is a pleasure to get such a good result after a complicated year. Victory was not far off but Groupama-FDJ raced very smart in the final and Valentin Madouas was strong. We had a great day collectively and it’s good to be rewarded with a podium. Personally, I had great feelings in this stage. It makes me happy to have managed to regain a level like this after my finger fracture on August 3 in the second stage of the Vuelta a Burgos. This bodes well for the future. We will try to get a stage victory but we will also try to get a good result in the final general classification. Even if the individual time trial (26.1km) will force some bigger time gaps, it is always also a good idea to have taken a few bonus seconds today.» - Clement
