Erviti: "It stings to see victory so close and run out of it"

Imanol Erviti was second in the Nimes goal. The Movistar rider acknowledged that despite being hurt, Politt "was the strongest on the run."


Imanol Erviti came close to victory in the twelfth stage of the 2021 Tour de France. The Movistar rider was second, something that left him with a face of circumstances at the finish line. "The best, the strongest has won. I got into the break without wanting to. I was protecting Enric and I saw that a large group was being formed with people from the sprinters and I got in. It was a day of escape that had already been done. The second place is something to be happy with, but it takes away your pride. Opportunities must be seized. I have tried everything and it has come out like this. You have to be happy, but it stings to see it so close and not touch it, "he said.

For his part, Nils Politt was very happy. "It's incredible to be able to win in the Tour de France. It's a dream. This morning Sagan left and we had to change the plan. We had to break away and I saw a lot of people get in and I knew we had to impose a rhythm High. On the radio they told me in the final kilometers that there was a steep slope and I decided to try it. Cycling is my passion, but now I think of all the efforts I have made to get here, "he said.
