Speaking seconds after the stage finish, the Giro d’Italia winner Tom Dumoulin said: “It’s really crazy. I’ve won the Giro! It was such a nerve wrecking day. I needed to stay calm and I almost couldn’t. Luckily I had good legs and I just went for it. I didn’t want to know the time splits. My sport director was only supposed to tell me when to stop taking risks and he did it at half way already. When I crossed the line he told me I had won but when I looked at the TV screen I saw I only had three seconds lead and I panicked a bit. I was angry but eventually I pulled it off and I’m super happy.”

The stage winner Jos van Emden said: “It’s unbelievable. I’m so happy and so emotional. I’ve come second in time trials too many times. This is the greatness of cycling. Finally I’ve won and it’s a big one. There are two really happy people here from the Netherlands. Yesterday I sent a message to Tom Dumoulin with the Maglia Rosa and he replied he’d hope we’d both be celebrating today and we are.”
