Gaia Realini (Trek-Segafredo): "It’s my first year in the team, my first year in the WorldTour and my first Flèche so this result is really really important for me. The team strategy was to preserve me as a leader. When Annemiek [van Vleuten] attacked on second ascent of the Mur, Elisa [Longo Borghini] stayed on her wheel and I was told to wait for the last climb of the Mur. I started the ascent in a good position but I didn’t go full gas from the bottom and I moved up until I got 3rd place. I’m really happy. The Mur is hard but it’s good for me."
