Speaking seconds after the stage finish, the stage winner Arnaud Démare said: “The youngsters of the team have done an enormous work to bring Sander Armée back. My three lead out men delivered me in a perfect position and I felt a lot of strength in my legs to launch my sprint. Coming to the Giro I didn’t think I’d get four stage wins. Hats off to my team mates!”

The Maglia Rosa João Almeida said: “The first part of the stage was fairly quiet, then a frenetic finish with many teams who wanted to race in the front. Tomorrow is a very undulating stage, there will be some attacks but we will be prepared.”
