Jonas Vingegaard’s full press conference on Monday

“Maybe some people don’t understand our tactics, but that’s their problem.”

If I had ridden with them for 70 kilometres and then found myself alone in the last kilometres – which happened – then my Tour could have been finished. So it’s not a problem of balls, but just of race intelligence.”said Jonas Vingegaard in response to the comments made by Remco Evenepoel Sunday night (“sometimes you have to have balls”the Belgian had said, speaking of Vineyard). We just didn’t want to waste time yesterday (Sunday), and we managed to do that. Maybe some people don’t understand our tactics, but that’s their problem.”added the leader of the Team Visma | Lease a Bike.
