Tour de France - Enric Mas: It will be a war between Egan Bernal and me for the white jersey
Deceuninck-Quick-Step

Enric Mas climbed to the top of the Young rider classification in the Tour de France. The rider of Deceuninck-Quick-Step finished the individual time trial in the ninth position.

Mas finished the 27.2-kilometre route of the fight against the clock 58 seconds behind the winner of the stage, his teammate Julian Alaphilippe. This result made him climb two positions in the General Classification -where now he sits in the fourth place- and one in the young classification, being eight seconds ahead of Egan Bernal (Ineos).

"I’m very happy because of my result today, and also because of Julian’s," said the Spaniard. "I’m pretty happy about the white jersey: from now on, it will be a war between Egan Bernal and me for the white jersey. At Deceuninck-Quick-Step, we can play different cards from now on. It is a big advantage to have two guys in the top 5 of the GC.

"As for the yellow jersey, our aim is to defend it for as long as possible. I think Julian can keep the yellow jersey until Paris. He has lost it once and taken it back. That shows how good he is on this Tour de France. It is a dream come true to wear the white jersey on my first Tour de France. Making it to the top 10 in Paris is my goal. For now, we are in a very good position and I’m very happy about our race."
