It needs to be posted as soon as it's available. He barely seemed aware of what he had just done, besides the fact that, as a Brit, he's "never really raced a big climb," and started the day with "no plan at all." It was also the 26-year-old's first pro win, but he appeared completely unfazed by that.
Highlights video, including that interview from 5:26:

As I just wrote in the game thread, I picked Holmes for my Emerging Riders team because he was eligible at just under 200 lifetime points and had been signed by Lotto Soudal - who did the same with Calle Hagen last year, and he ended up in the Vuelta top-10.
As he is a similar rider with a similar career trajectory, I hoped Holmes could get some results, but not this big and this quickly.

All aboard the hype train! :D
