Speaking seconds after the stage finish, the stage winner Ben Healy said: “I went from far out but I thought this was the right move. I didn’t want to lose my chance to win. I had good legs all along. This is a good day. It’s a massive win for the team and myself. I’ve always been successful in Italy, even before I turned pro. Racing here suits me well and hopefully there’s more to come.”

The Maglia Rosa Andreas Leknessund said: “It’s a relief to retain the Maglia Rosa after such a strong effort at the end. It was the fight I expected in the last climb. I probably wouldn’t have raced like that if I wasn’t wearing the Maglia Rosa. It’s also thanks to my team.”
