Stage win for Etixx-Quick Step

Etixx-Quick Step has won the third stage in the Tour of California with Juliann Alaphilippe. The teammate of Styby was the strongest in the queen stage and is also the new leader. “Today was a great day for our team.”

“It was a relative easy day until the final. Then it all became a bit crazy. Everybody wanted to be in the front and so there were some crashes. I had a flat tire just on the bottom of the climb so I couldn’t help anymore.”

Alaphilippe got help from the other guys of the team and won the stage. “He was really strong today. He is amazing. The coming days will be hard as well. Tomorrow we have a stage of 217 kilometers.”
