“It was an unbelievable stage, but I have to give it up to Armand, because the navigation was very tricky and he was on point on everything. We had a good pace and didn’t have any punctures. We even stopped to help Seth – we gave our spare wheel to him so he could finish as well. It was a perfect day”.
