The danish rider Magnus Nielsen made it. He was the only one in this years 40th edition of the race to keep the yellow jersey for more than one stage and that meant for him first place overall. The man in yellow was not absent in the final group sprint in Terezin, where the fastest was Danny Van Poppel from the Netherlands.
"I'm so happy, it is unbelievable. Of course the only thing I wished for was to be able to keep the yellow jersey. I know it changed its owner after each stage, but I hoped I could make it. Again I could rely on my legs, in this hard stage they stood the brunt. It was beautiful, but very difficult race with many surprises, namely the challenging climbs. Therefore I'm glad it was me to be victorious in the end, but I have to thank my team mates, who helped me a lot," said after the finish the happy Dane Magnus Nielsen, who is actually a student of cycling mechanics in his home country.
