Alaphilippe wins the Tour of California

Zdenek and his team Etixx-Quick Step have managed to bring the yellow jersey from Julian Alaphilippe home. The Frenchman has become the final winner of the Tour of California. “That was the only goal today. I am very glad we did it.”

“Finally there was a flat stage on the program here. The open fields and the wind made the peloton very stress. But the leader’s jersey from Julian was never in real danger.”

Zdenek was also pleased about himself. “I felt a little better here every day. Now I will keep working on the shape until the Tour de Suisse, which begins on June 11. Tomorrow we already will fly back to Europe.”

And for the record: Styby finished 82nd in the overall standings in California, just an hour from his leader Alaphilippe.
