Sergio Henao: To win like this is simply unbelievable

Sergio Henao has won Paris-Nice by two seconds over Alberto Contador. This way of winning gives this victory an even more special flavor for the Colombian of Team Sky.

The rider got the fifth victory in six years for Team Sky at Paris-Nice and at the end of the race he couldn't believe it yet but had some thankful words. "I suffered a lot. I want to thank everyone who made it possible, my team-mates and my wife.

"This is the greatest victory in my career and to win it like this at the last metre of Paris-Nice is simply unbelievable," the Colombian said.

Henao's victory is even sweeter after the suffering he did on the day and against such contenders. "Paris-Nice is such a great race and there were so many great rivals like Alberto Contador. It was tough, but I didn't ask myself any questions.

"I knew I had to suffer until the last minutes but I had to do it for myself and for the greatness of Colombian cycling," the rider commented.
