Quotes from the protagonists

Speaking seconds after the stage finish, the stage winner Taco van der Hoorn said: “I can’t believe it. I just wanted to be aggressive for the whole Giro. I knew it would be very difficult to win a stage. I took my chance but I didn’t believe we’d make it with a one minute lead going into the finale. But Simon Pellaud rode very hard up the hill. He was tired then and I dropped him and I heard on the radio that I had a lead of 40 seconds. I looked back at 1km to go and I started believing I could win. It’s unbelievable.”

The Maglia Rosa Filippo Ganna said: “We have seen a lot of sprinters being dropped in the climbs, there were not a lot of riders in the main group at the end, up the hill, I saw that Remco had fantastic legs. It will be hard for me to defend the Maglia Rosa tomorrow.”
