Jumbo-Visma's Sepp Kuss has taken his first win in the Tour de France at the fifteenth stage.

The 15th day of competition in La Grande Boucle took the riders to Andorra-La Vella, a place that's quite familiar for the American. After being in the breakaway with teammates like Steven Kruijswijk and Wout van Aert, the rider launched his attack on the last climb of the day, maintaining a gap that gave him a solo victory.

"It's really unbelievable," Kuss commented. "I can't describe it. I was really suffering this Tour. Today the stage finished in my hometown, and therefore I was very motivated to go for the stage win. Finally, I found my good legs and I could finish the job.

"My girlfriend and her family stood on the final climb to cheer me on. I know the last climb a bit, but haven't ridden it often. It's a very tough climb. My team did a fantastic job today. Wout was ahead of me in the whole valley. If a champion like that works for me, then I have to finish it off too. I'm really happy that I won here."
