Speaking seconds after the stage finish, the stage winner and first Maglia Azzurra Filippo Ganna, said: “I wanted to do well today because this is a very important race for me and for the team. In the first section there was a lot of headwind but then after the U-turn the wind was favorable and I was able to push harder. Tomorrow there is a stage for sprinters and we will see if I will be able to defend this jersey. In the next few days I will support the team leaders, Richard Carapaz and Richie Porte and if my legs allow it I will try to show myself up front again. “
