Seconds after the stage finish, the stage winner said: “I’m really happy. It’s the result of an enormous team work. Everybody was kind of tired at the end. I was concerned about Amador but I’ve done it again. It’s great”
The Maglia Rosa said: “I want to say thank you to everyone in the team. I didn’t know the Maglia Rosa could give me so much power and inspiration. When I saw the opportunity to get away from the group of favourites, I made my move. At the end I tried to gain as many seconds as I could in order to keep the Maglia Rosa as long as I can”.
