Speaking seconds after the stage finish, the stage winner Omar Fraile said: “It’s been an incredible day. It couldn’t have gone any better. I’m super happy. It’s a win I’ve dreamt of for a long time. I’ve had a passion for the Giro since I was a kid. This is my best win ever.”

The race leader Tom Dumoulin (Team Sunweb) said: “We were not scared of Amador or the Astana riders. We were doing our own pace. We knew other teams would also ride behind them so we never considered giving away the Maglia Rosa. It was an amazing team work and we are really happy.”
