Paris-Nice 2018: Stage 8 highlights Paris-Nice 2018: Stage 8 highlights

Gorka Izagirre took bonus points in the first intermediate sprint of the day to jump above his brother and finish third overall, 14 seconds back. "Then when I saw that there was no breakaway attempt, I chose to save my strength before going for it". However, we reset our minds, planned a good strategy with our team-mates and sports directors, choosing to launch a long-range attack.

"It's really a dream come true to win Paris-Nice and add my name to the winners' list next to some of the greats of cycling", Soler said. "I'm progressing step by step".

Yates made contact with other favourites in the descent into Nice but finished sixth, 38 seconds behind De La Cruz and second placed Omar Fraile of Spain. Soler collected bonus seconds in the second intermediate sprint at La Turbie before Fraile unsuccessfully tried to go solo in the descent of Col d'Eze.

"I was just empty in the finale there", said Yates, who had taken the leader's jersey after winning the previous stage. It was a really hard day from the start.

Paris-Nice 2018: Stage 8 highlights

Another strong week comes after De la Cruz took time trial success on the final stage of the Ruta del Sol in February to prove his future GC credentials, performances that will surely earn him a place in the team's Giro d'Italia squad in two month's time.

After three years at Quick-Step where his talent was always evident but he never quite managed to break through, De la Cruz really seems to be relishing life at Sky, working for Henao and Poels for most of the race, before seizing an opportunity for individual success on the final stage around Nice. "De la Cruz and Ion joined me there, we David and myself opened a gap - and it was just full-gas until the finish".

"I'm getting closer. previous year I lost Romandie on the last day as well by 20 seconds and now I lost Paris-Nice by four seconds. Today a great rider won".
