Peter Sagan added during the press conference: “The key for my success is that I went away alone. I caught the occasion on the right moment. It was a good decision. We had a tail wind, I could set my own tempo and keep it constant. I thought if my rivals would come across to me it would ok as well. Fortunately, it didn’t happen. I knew the guys behind were fighting each other. I’m glad I had a very good luck, with no puncture and no crash. As Silvan Dillier was the only rider left with me, I thought I should not underestimate him. I asked if we were going to work together and he said yes. Eventually, he was working more than me on the cobblestones and it was impossible for me to drop him. I was cramping at the end but I still had enough resources to win the sprint. When I was young, my dream was to win Paris-Roubaix, and then the world championship and the Tour of Flanders. Now I’ve won all three. It makes me very happy. I don’t have to say if I’d exchange one of these wins for another one.”
