We worked well as a team, I really have to thank my teammates who did everything to keep me under cover in the last kilometers and to face the final in a good position and as always I played my chances. Among all the sprint specialists I feel satisfied with this ninth place, waiting to get back a chance maybe in the right escape in a restricted sprint. “

Even today the sprinter trains were not surprised but the Giro is known to be unpredictable and we always want to be ready. I know I am one of the athletes to have already covered more miles of breakaway but it will certainly not be the last of this Giro. I’ll try again. “
