Speaking seconds after the stage finish, the stage winner, the Maglia Rosa Simon Yates, said: “We decided before the stage that we wouldn’t chase because normally on such a finale there are faster guys like Tim Wellens. Other teams did that for the stage win. The plan was that if it came back I would, of course, try. I’m glad to getting more time on Tom Dumoulin. He was chasing me and he looked better than other days on steep finishes. He’s getting better as the race goes on.”
