Speaking seconds after the stage finish, the winner and new race leader said: “I knew about the finale since I recce’d it with our sport director Davide Bramati. I knew it suited me perfectly. I also knew that I had good form since I did well at the Strade Bianche [2nd]. I attacked at the right moment when it was very steep just inside 3km to go. I’m delighted to lead the race now, I’ll try to win the overall but I can’t promise I’ll do it because there’s an uphill finish on Sunday that might be too hard for me”.
