The South African has not failed to make a wink to his homeland that he thanked:
“For me, having the opportunity to wear this yellow jersey on the biggest race in the world is enormous. Everyone watches the Tour de France, including in South Africa. I thank the whole team for giving me confidence and especially Simon [Gerrans] who gave me the opportunity to wear this jersey, “said Impey on France 24.
