Astana's Jakob Fuglsang says that the win he earned at the Tour de Romandie will give him added confidence as he gets ready to prepare for the Tour de France.

Fuglsang launched a late attack, which was enough to allow him to cross the finish line by himself.

"I already tried to attack at the final climb, but going downhill I had to chase and close the gap with the leaders," said the rider. "But luckily halfway the downhill the road went up a little bit and at that point, my sports director Dmitriy Fofonov was screaming at me: 'Now is the moment!', but I responded that I was already racing at my limit.

"But just after that moment I was in the perfect position, just behind the group that was mostly looking at each other, and so I took my chance. I’m really happy with this victory, it gives a really good feeling and a lot of confidence for the start of my preparations for the Tour de France in a few weeks."
