"It’s quite different from my previous podium in Liège. Three years ago, I was chasing behind Lizzie Deignan, and I felt like I was catching back to her, while this time I was in a group, we couldn’t come close to Annemiek [van Vleuten] and I had to sprint for second. I expected to be on the podium maybe earlier this season. It’s a relief to finish my classics with at least one podium place. We’re really confident as a team now. It’s super cool to have Marta [Cavalli] win two races [Amstel Gold Race and La Flèche Wallonne Femmes] and then me on the podium. Marta is great for the steep climbs, but today in the finale we decided I would be better for the sprint. In the Tour de France, when we have Cecilie as well we’ll be quite a strong team to contend with."
