"We had an excellent week in spite of everything".

"I'm a bit disappointed. It would have been a great moment for me to win the overall. We did our best and I think we had a great race: I won a stage, I did a good time trial, and today I finished third in the stage and second overall. It's still a success, but we're still short of overall victory to be fully satisfied. We can leave the United Arab Emirates happy because the team has worked very well over the last few days. In spite of everything, we've had an excellent week.
