Tour de France - Matej Mohoric: To do this wearing my national championship jersey is even more special for me
Team Bahrain Victorious

Matej Mohoric (Bahrain Victorius) has taken the victory of the seventh stage of the Tour de France, completing like this his grand tour wins.

The Slovenian national champion had already won stages in the Giro d'Italia and the Vuelta a España, and only the French grand tour was missing from his palmares. The rider was part of the breakaway and after leaving everyone else behind, he crossed the finish line by himself.

"It’s unbelievable! My legs were screaming in the last 20 kilometres, but I didn’t listen to them," said Mohoric. "This was my best victory because firstly it’s Tour de France, the biggest race in the world. Secondly, I did it through the breakaway, beating some of the best riders.

"I was fighting for the polka-dot jersey today and took the five points, and then I was hoping they would look at each other, allowing me to win the stage. And to do this wearing my national championship jersey is even more special for me."
