After his victory Dumoulin said: "Before I started the stage I actually didn't have a good feeling but now I see the result I realise that wasn't the case. Today I didn't give up, I fought with myself until the end and gave it all that I had. Its nice to go into the mountains with a good advantage but like the Vuelta showed me, you can loose everything in one day. We have some really tough stages coming up and it's still a long way to go." Team Sunweb coach Aike Visbeek (NED) said: "Tom did a splendid time trial, he had a tremendous amount of pressure and there were a lot of expectations. The whole day went really smoothly and we are all incredibly proud. This is a great moment for the team, and to have the jersey for two years in a row makes it extra special. We are looking forward to doing the jersey proud tomorrow."
