"It's not nice to win like this"

Maximilian Schachmann, winner of the Paris-Nice for the second consecutive year, celebrated his victory with a certain bittersweet flavor after the fall of Roglic.


German Maximilian Schachmann (Bora Hansgrohe), winner of the Paris Nice for the second year in a row, admitted a certain bittersweet taste when profiting from the misfortune of former leader Primoz Roglic, as the Slovenian suffered two falls and a mechanical breakdown that led to him losing a title that was almost assured.

"It was a crazy day. Nobody could wait for what happened today. My feelings are mixed because Roglic fell, even twice. I don't know if it was his fault The first time we waited for him and the second time the gap widened, we were engrossed in the battle for the stage at that time. I don't know if I can be happy, it's not nice to win like that, "he stressed.

Schachmann, 27, achieved his second title in a row in this race, something that has not happened since Alexander Vinokourov did in 2002 and 2003. "The goal was to defend my title, and now I find myself in yellow in a totally different scenario from last year. I had just arrived from a concentration in height and I started the week a little tired. The form has improved despite the cold, "he said.
