Le dichiarazioni dei protagonisti

Speaking seconds after the stage finish, the stage winner Mathieu van der Poel, said: “I was riding completely on empty in the last few kilometres. I was told that Pogačar was coming close but I wasn’t even able to listen. I just wanted to reach the finish as fast as I could. I’m happy with the win. I attacked from far away because I was cold and I felt good until 20km to go.”

 

The Maglia Azzurra Tadej Pogačar, said: “When I saw Wout van Aert suffering I went to try and get more time on GC but I never thought I would be anywhere close to catching Van der Poel. I’m super happy with the advantage I have over Van Aert now before the time trial.”
