“Today the team made a great job, we were always in front, today I saw a very compact team and I do not hide the fact that we started to try to collect the full result. What we expected did not arrive, but a third place give us motivation. I’m starting to have good feelings also in view of the Giro d’Italia. I wanted to reach my first victory of the season for me, for the team, but above all for all the friends and relatives who overwhelmed me with affection even on the road. We will try again for sure, maybe already in the third stage of this Giro di Sicilia. Today I really felt the race very much, the next stages, even if still in Sicily, will be far away from home and I will certainly find more tranquility and mental serenity in facing them. “
