Diego Ulissi (UAE Team Emirates), 3rd of La Flèche Wallonne 2019: “The last 40 kilometres were very fast and intense, with lots of attacks. I tried to go on the move in the penultimate ascent of the Mur de Huy. Our leader Dan Martin had a bad day. When we heard of it on the radio, I tried to recover some energy to get the best result possible in the finale. Then, riders like Alaphilippe are very hard to beat in such finales. It doesn’t change anything towards Liège. We’ll see how Dan is feeling but we have a lot of respect for him and for what he’s done on this race.”
